PUBLISHED BY UMBRAGE EDITIONS
Tent Life: Haiti is a book of photographs taken after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Gallery visited Haiti with seven other artists from New York City, who all volunteered their time and talents to bring smiles to Haitians while photographing and filming their heartbreaking story. These photographs communicate the resiliency, dignity, and strength of millions of Haitians who are presently forced to live in tragic makeshift tent communities. Beautiful inspirational portraits of dignity and joy show Haitians surviving, living, working, and vehemently not waiting for others to determine their fate after the devastating earthquake of 2010, and also show that the struggle to rebuild has only begun. This book is a tribute to the Haitian people as they stand as symbols of hope within the larger housing and water issues that plague Haiti today.
100% royalties from this book go to Haitian charities J/P Haitian Relief Organization, Healing Haiti, and the Global Syndicate.
The Book Launch and Opening Reception for TENT LIFE: HAITI will be on January 6th, 2011 at the Umbrage Gallery in Dumbo, Brookly, NYC. 6-8pm. RSVP HERE
