New Suns started as a research about the Caribbean sun as a symbol of exoticism and leisure. A critical inquiry into the visual tropes and stereotypes that establish the ideas of the Caribbean as paradise on earth. However, as the project developed I realised that the project was much more personal than anticipated.

New Suns is an ongoing search for the perfect Caribbean sun that is home to me and the hues that influence that feeling.
