Denise Colomb produced two major reports in Martinique, Guadeloupe and Haiti, in 1948 and 1958 respectively. Her first journey was initiated by Aimé Césaire, who provided her first commission when he invited her to join the celebrations of the centenary of the abolition of slavery in the French Antilles (1848-1948). She went back ten years later, with a commission from the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique. During this strip she also took colour photographs.
