“In the earlier 90's after traveling throughout the Sea Islands on the Southeast Coast on the United States, I decided that it was time to go home, back to Africa. There was something that I needed to know about the nature of myself. In love with customs, beliefs and material cultural, I made many pictures, but only a few of handful of people. The portraits for Africa: Gems and Jewels are that handful.” — Carrie Mae Weems
