Remnants of an Exodus tells the story of a once thriving Caribbean immigrant community under the threat of gentrification in Spring Valley; a suburban town just 40 minutes out of New York City.
Driven by metaphors, ROAE exhibits nuance — yet, one that indicates a sense of endurance within those negatively affected in the slow death of a community caused by isolationism and political expediency.
As a devotee to the science of Psychology and Visual Arts, Al J. Thompson sets out to convey the nuances that he believes are circumstances of societal turmoil. His rhythmic approach to photography at times, envelopes people, places, and things that often generate poetic dialogue with subtlety; one that he perceives is consistent to the impression that all things relate.
