Far-Flung Villages in Haiti

Over the years that I’ve been flying back and forth between Port Au Prince and Jacmel I’ve wondered about the people who live in those far-flung villages in the valleys and mountains below that make me think of Peru. There are no roads just trails leading to the houses that are clearly not accessible by vehicle. I’ve wondered about medical care and how they handle emergencies and education and food. I’ve wondered if the innocence I sense in Ridoré exists in these far-flung villages; I wonder what it will be like when I get there.

About Jeane La Rance

My brother gave me my first camera when I was nine or ten years of age, he bought it in Europe. I don't remember much about the camera itself it was the pictures I couldn't get enough of, and that still holds true. My life is all about photography. In the beginning it was black and white film. I loved being in the darkroom nothing could compare to it and even though I swore I'd never go digital, I rarely shoot film anymore. I went to the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM for my Bachelors Degree. There I studied Documentary Photography, Cinematography and Post Production Editing. Later I attended Savannah College of Art and Design for a Masters Degree in the same fields of study, Photography and Moving Images.
