South of Haiti
As far as nation’s images go, it’s hard to imagine a worse one than Haiti’s, which in the West is defined by media images of poverty, disease, and civil war. While those are important stories, they don’t show the whole picture, as Alex Horner demonstrates with “South of Haiti“:
In October 2012, Nick, Dave, Francisco and I, set off on a 10 day journey along the Southern coast of Haiti in the back of a pickup. Our goal? To capture a side of Haiti that is rarely seen. Having been to Port Au Prince multiple times, it was refreshing to see Haiti in a new light. It’s important to recognize that the images typically shown of Haiti, or any 3rd world country, do not necessarily represent the country as a whole.
Amen to that! And a beauty video to boot. Music by Rhian Sheehon.
