I have so many beautiful portraits of people I’ve met in Haiti. I think of my first trip and of Dr. René warning me about the people stealing my heart and how right he was. On my first trip I wanted to give something to the people I would be meeting for the first time so I took a small portable printer and tons of ink and paper and made portraits of anyone who wanted a photograph until I ran out of paper. The images you’ll see were all selected at random and from different times and places in LaVallée and Jacmel. I’m happy to show you how they presented themselves to me.
