We Saw an Angel by Jacky KIJA Gotin

"We Saw an Angel"

French Caribbean photographer Jacky KIJA Gotin was born in Guadeloupe in 1980. He learned photography following photographers in soul and jazz concerts in Paris. “My photography is about the identity,” says Gotin. “ As a west Indian, I was born on an island with a Caribbean background, but with African, European, American influences. I guess my photography is about the need to define myself without denying my roots.”
