Off to Trinidad again

Lucky me will leave for Trinidad on Monday to continue my work with the Moko Jumbies of the Dragon Keylemanjahro School of Arts & Culture, a stilt walking school, and to photograph Laura Anderson Barbata's new costumes for this years carnival band. Laura (below) is a New York and Mexico City based artist who has been the principal costume designer for the school for some years now. The image above shows a group of 'flamingos' from 2005 . More on her band 2006 click here

Laura's work is featured in my book MOKO JUMBIES: The Dancing pirits of Trinidad.
