August Sander, Circus People, 1930.

Sulter produces her own counter-image:

stories maud sulter s esi edugyan s and mine
STORIES – MAUD SULTER’S, ESI EDUGYAN’S AND MINE.

Sulter’s poetic-story -“Blood Money” - the life of a Cameroonian young girl called Monique - “There’s no way I can make this poem rhyme”.

Esi Edugyan’s Half Blood Blues - Hitler’s thugs lump together blacks and Jews as in “‘Jewkikes!’” and “‘Niggerkikes!’”

Maud Sulter: the presence of Africa in Europe

Me: The presence of Europe in Africa

if the shoe fits wear it
IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT.

The “punctum” sabotages our expectations and creates the artistry of the entire work (Roland Barthes).
