Review of Carrie Mae Weems exhibition at Cafe Gallery Projects, London, June 8 - July 3 2005, written by Eddie Chambers. Extract as follows: “Within her practice Weems often makes generous yet considered use of text. To this end, her work has developed a particularly recognisable aesthetic. While Weems’ work is well known within the US, this exhibition is the first opportunity that London audiences have of seeing an exhibition of her work. Strangely perhaps, those responsible for the exhibition have selected as the main body of the exhibition a work dating back to 1995. From Here I Saw What Happened and I Cried consists of 32 photographic panels, each one an individual or group portrait of an African-American person or persons. The images range from those taken in the early decades of photography through to more recent times, though none of the images could be said to date from the present day.”
