This self-published series by Paris based Italian photographer Nicola Lo Calzo is a four book compilation exploring the effects of slavery in modern times. This series contains four books on four different locations, as described below:

Ayjtj - "This series traces for the first time the multiple experiences related to key memories in Haiti, the descendants of revolutionaries, the Voodoo pantheon, the "Poles" affair, the Carnival in Jacmel, the "relics" of national heroes and the new forms of re-appropriation of the past, to the impressively popular initiative of the "Movement for the Success of the Image of the Independence Heroes". - NLC

Casta - Race, Memory, and Community in the United States - "The photographs seek to explore the complexities and contradictions linked to collective memory in the southern parts of the United States. The project examines how and why the communities re-appropriate the past, the thought process among it's racial strata and the ways and manners by which they are transferring this memory to the next generation" - NLC

Mas - "The photographic essay shows the acuity of the slavery problem in Guadeloupe. There is little doubt that this event in the West Indian history is not a closed wound. The result of this research show's that slavery's past, far from being obliterated from the Caribbean memories, appears as a key period, sometimes occulted, sometimes rehabilitated, sometimes reinterpreted, and it remains at the heart of relations in the country." - NLC

Tchamba - "this series, realized in Ghana, Benin, and Senegal, is a part of long term investigation, that, between Africa, Europe and Americas, is interrogating the living memories of the slave trade and colonial slavery. Neither memorial tourism and commemorations, nor the official stance about the duty to remember can give a thorough account of the non-official living memory, which lies within individual and personal experience."
