In this captivating collection of photographs, Camille Turner and Camal Pirbhai draw attention to 18th-century fugitive slave ads from Canada’s colonial archives. Juxtaposing reproductions of actual advertisements with contemporary photographs that reinterpret the details of the clothing worn by the freedom seekers as high-fashion, Turner and Pirbhai provoke a conversation about Canada’s often unacknowledged role in the transatlantic slave trade.
