Daufuskie Memories

Presented by Columbia Museum of Art at Columbia Museum of Art

Through a series of over 60 photographs taken from 1977–1982, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe vividly and poignantly captured African-American life on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. In that time, Daufuskie Island stood alone as the last South Carolina sea island untouched by the outside world, serving as a home to residents whose Gullah lifestyle, traditions, and language were preserved because of their isolation. Recognizing this unique culture and the need to capture this way of life, Moutoussamy-Ashe used her camera to chronicle the life of the island. Presented by BB&T.
