This is a response to images from British artist Leah Gordon’s Kanaval series. Gordon’s photographs feature cross-dressed performers in the carnival of Jacmel, a town on the southern coast of Haiti. This short piece imagines some of the narratives behind the images and reveals how these crossings perform and deform colonial history.
