Piece description from the artist
This was my first trip to Haiti in March, 2011. The trip was rescheduled for when right after I graduated. It was an awesome experience to document on my own and get a feel for the Haitian people. I was shocked with the juxtaposition of how the media portrayed them post-earthquake with the reality of their living conditions. There is no need for people to live this way- I eagerly await my return in order to help those less fortunate than myself.
All proceeds from this image will go toward future trips to Haiti.
Art, like all of life, is not an instant process but a well-developed craft over time. Visual art captured my attention as a teenager. I wandered into my first photography course and realized the ability to document the world is a significant passion.
