An exhibition of photographs by a local mother-daughter tandem that revamps the Mary Poppins archetype will soon be on display at the Eatonville branch library.

Black Mary: rebirth of the market and culture, by a renowned journalist Renata sago and her mother Kanika Sago, is a 12-photo series that reshuffles the Disneyfied Poppins as “a modern day black woman invoking joy, power and self-determination in communities suffering from socio-economic disparities.”

Black Mary’s photos feature Kanika as the titular Black Mary and various residents of Central Florida. Black mary was previously on display at the Orlando Public Library in early 2020 before COVID, so it might be a more relaxed opportunity to pick up these works.

“We have suffered so many losses. At the same time, we have harnessed our collective resilience, ”Renatao Sago said of the photographs in a press release.

Black Mary: rebirth of the market and culture will be on view at the Eatonville Public Library from May 1 to June 30. Free!
