If you got a chance to attend or watch our Social Media Week event ‘The Power of the Digital Diaspora’ you’ll remember the lovely Chantal Miller – owner of ChantiMedia, a platform created to showcase and celebrate creatives of Caribbean Heritage.
The latest episode of her web series ‘I Am’ features freelance photographer Frederique Rapier whose stunning images you may have seen in Complexd Magazine. Rapier is of French, Korean and St Lucian descent (where she spent 10 years as a child). In the video Frederique talks about her first commission and also how the Caribbean has been an inspiration for her wok.
Chantal said goodbye to the grey skies of London for the sandy beaches of Nevis just after Christmas where she’ll be continuing her journey to find more creatives from the Caribbean, something which I’m very really looking forward to. Watch this space as you’ll be seeing a familiar face in one of Chantal’s videos very soon!
