The Other Side debuted at New York City's African Burial Ground National Monument, was exhibited again at Oyster Bay Historical Society, and now comes to Women's Rights National Historical Park.  The exhibition displays the first artistic photographic collection to examine the slave cemetery at the William Floyd Estate in New York.  The estate is part of the National Park Service, which commissioned Xiomaro to create the images.  William Floyd (1734-1821), is a founding father and general who served under George Washington.  The exhibition is intended by the artist to serve as spiritual memorials to the laborers—both enslaved persons and paid servants of color—who worked on Floyd’s plantation.  The photographs have a wistful, dreamy quality that evokes a sense of melancholy and introspection.
