Abstract (English)

"In the captivating photo series Wanted, artists Camal Pirbhai and Camille Turner repurpose authentic 18th-century fugitive slave ads printed in Canada, which featured detailed descriptions of the clothing worn by people who had resisted enslavement by stealthily running away. Descriptions of these outfits are reinterpreted in this photo series as high-fashion spreads that wouldn’t look out of place in a glossy magazine or on a billboard." -- Publisher's website.
