In the Bahamas, the Junkanoo celebration is synonymous with the yuletide season; one without the other is unimaginable. As a child, I would lie in bed awake at nights listening to the beating of the goatskin drums -- a sound that let me and other Bahamians within the sound's realm, know that Christmas was coming. The photographs in this work represent my own perspective on the Junkanoo celebration; its spirit and splendor as expressed through the color, craftsmanship and pageantry of Junkanoo.
