Abigail Hadeed

June 2006

Abigail Hadeed arrived at Light Work just as the World Cup started a globe-wide soccer frenzy. The West Indian Artist was equally eager to see her home team Trinidad/Tobago compete in the Cup for the first time. Abigail spent her residency experimented with many different printing techniques, including a range of silver gelatin papers toned with various techniques. She also learnt cyano and platinum printing. She returned home with a wealth of knowledge and many, many prints.

Abigail has made a name for herself with documentary and editorial photography. She recently published Trees Without Roots. The Caribbean & Central America, a book she dedicated to the “courageous Afro-Caribbean People of Central America.” She has exhibited in the Caribbean, Belgium, Brazil, Cuba, Spain, the U.S., and other countries.
