Diaspora - Chaila

Diaspora - Chaila
by Dagmar Van Weeghel


This portrait of Chaila from Guinea Bissau is from a series of immigrant (non-model) portraits retelling the significance and importance of African settlers in Europe throughout history to present day. It is an homage to their collective experience - a tribute to their strength, resilience, and perseverance. The portraits refer to the Orientalist paintings of Josep Tapiró Baró.
