“The triangle is: The Americas & Caribbean, Europe and Africa. The black triangle for me is a very deep feeling, politically, culturally and socially one that is to be presented in a simple way. I had to capture it through my camera, through my work and present it as honestly as possible.” – Armet Francis.

This October Atlas is presenting a group exhibition showing era-defining images of historical moments and heroes of the fight against racist ideology and politics on three continents.
