Rewriting History


Fabiola Jean-Louis was born in Port-au- Prince, and at a young age, moved to Brooklyn. She began her career in fashion, where she flourished and later on in life discovered her talent for photography. Fabiola’s series, Rewriting History, eloquently presents a reinterpretation of history, blending reality with the speculative. She states, “My work always begins with research, and experimentation. Because I do not sketch anything, every design aspect is figured out through trial and era which leaves plenty of room for discovery. Once I've had time to construct in my head, I move to working with samples or models.”
