Points of recognition offers the reader a way to connect with the humanity and dignity of Suriname’s indigenous peoples and their way of life in the 21st century.
Single page photographs and several two-page spreads will draw the viewer into the life of Suriname’s indigenous people. Captions under each photo provide the reader with more insight about the person(s) portrayed and/or the activities shown.
Among others, the reader will witness a Carib ceremony that marks the end of a mourning period, pay a visit to the Trios and the Akuryos deep in the Amazone rainforest, and celebrate the inauguration of a new chief in a town near Paramaribo.
Points of recognition is a contemporary photobook that opens a window to a world and a life unknown to many.
Points of Recognition contains 124 photographs and measures about 30x25cm (11.8×9.8 inches). It is available as a softcover and hardcover edition.
