Omar Victor Diop, Empire Windrush, Tilbury Docks: 1948 (2018)
Edition of 25
In 2018, Autograph commissioned Omar Victor Diop to produce a new self-portrait responding to a key moment in black British history, a celebration of the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush.
Through his research he found photographs depicting men from the Caribbean dressed in stylish suits and hats posing for the camera. Diop wanted to capture the essence of this moment of change, hope and anticipation, as a resistance to the harsh realities these men faced: reimagining this moment in history differently and to celebrate the African lineages in the diaspora.
