Carnival is a celebration of chaos and freedom and at its best, it is also incredibly majestic. Moko jumbies, especially in recent times, have become so beautifully and artistically expressed that I wanted to cast a spotlight on that beauty while keeping a light and fun feeling. I hid some music notes in the road to inject more life into their dance. I tried to capture echoes of a soldier, a jester and a midnight robber in the costumes.
We have such creative traditions in Trinidad that need to be preserved and celebrated. They highlight so much of our precious history.
