The sugar industry in Trinidad and Tobago has considerably reduced after over 200 years of dominating the landscape. During these gruelling years, labourers toiled to produce 'brown gold', rum and other byproducts. By the middle of the 20th century, the industry underwent changes as technology replaced older modes of production and transport. At this critical juncture of modernisation, Garnet Ifill, a young and visionary photographer, decided to capture the fading heritage. His unique collection of photographs is, therefore, a permanent reminder of a bygone era.
