Regine Romain

Log-in to Favorite

Régine Romain travels through a Haitian-American identity liberally dashed with hybrid languages, customs, traditions and delicious folklore. She is a photographer, writer, performer and educator. Her photography provides a mirror to a rich vibrant world as she looks into the black space, into the black face offering visual insight into the lives of beautiful, and often misrepresented people. Her multi-dimensional sojourns abroad are rootical expeditions, most often pilgrimages, exploring indigenous intelligence, languages/proverbs, music/dance, sustainable natural living, ritual/spiritual practices throughout the African diaspora.

Régine Romain is the Founder and Director the Urban PhotoPoets project, the Brooklyn Photo Salon and Mami Wata Healing Arts. She is currently an A.I.R. Gallery 2011 - 2012 Fellow and the editor of Diaspora Diaries: An Educators Guide to MoCADA Artists. Régine Romain received her B.S. in International Studies from Bowie State University and a MA in Photography & Urban Culture from Goldsmiths, University of London.
