I’m sorry to say once again that I will not be traveling to Haiti in June with the doctors—I have too much work to do but hopefully I will go on the November mission.
Most recently I received a grant for my work in Haiti to publish a book of images by my documentary photography students in Haiti, the young photographers of LaVallée, and myself. I’m very excited about this project because I know it will be an exquisite jewel of a book bringing joy to all who see it. Editing for a book is very time consuming and of course I would like to have tons of images in it but that’s not how it works. I have one year to finish editing, picking and choosing images to be published. I would like to have it ready for Christmas but I can’t say for sure that I will. The title of the book will be, A Story of Life and Culture in LaVallée de Jacmel, Haiti. I will keep you all up to date as the book progresses by occasionally adding images made by the young photographers and myself.
Once again, I want to thank the people in LaVallée for letting me be a part of their lives—it has been a great honor for me. Mesi beaucoup!
The following image were all made by the young photographers of LaVallée.
