In Trinidad is the first photographic book to document the complex issues of post-colonial Trinidadian identity primarily through visual means. Puerto Rican photographer Pablo Delano has over the period of a decade photographed ordinary Trinidadians at work, at play, at worship in their homes, on the streets, and in their vocational niches. His richly reproduced black and white photographs capture the essence of a uniquely intercultural Caribbean People, paradoxically poised between oil and natural gas-driven postindustrial capital development and earlier rhythms keyed to seasons of Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Orisha, and secular festivity. An Introduction by Trinidadian masman Peter Minshall and essays by Professor Emeritus and calypso scholar Gordon Rohlehr, and cultural analyst Milla Riggio reinforce the vision articulated by the photographs.
