Georgetown, Guyana

Georgetown, Guyana is one of five films from SIX's Manifesting Monuments which screened on Saturday, October 15th at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, UK

Shortly before leaving Guyana in June 2016, I had the opportunity to sit down with retired Civil Engineer, Egbert Carter and Photographer and Lawyer, Nikhil Ramkarran to discuss the Queen Victoria monument found in front of the High Court in central Georgetown.

Like many pre-independence structures found in Guyana, written history and documentation is sparse, and the best account comes from the ones who were there.
