Photographer's Note

Hermitage Great House in Grenada was first purchased in 1765 by British Merchants. Eventually the plantation was used for growing sugar cane and the prosperity of its owners underpinned by using slave labour. At the back of the house is a slave pen, a dark dank place where slaves were put as punishment. Today it is gradually being destroyed by nature. What would once have been a splendid property is almost beyond repair.
Slavery enriched a few but took the lives of many.
