Remnants of an Exodus
by Al J Thompson
Description

Remnants of an Exodus is Al J Thompson's first monograph, a love letter to his second home of Spring Valley, a once thriving Caribbean immigrant community under threat of gentrification, just 40 minutes from New York City. The case bound, 104 page book is comprised of 55 black and white photographs made over several years; Thompson observes and experiences change firsthand as the community undergoes a dramatic shift in both demographic and political landscapes, and tensions mount between different groups in the community. The book includes an essay by Shane Rocheleau entitled Gathering Remnants, written in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement and its relationship to the broader historical struggle for civil rights for African Americans.
