HAITI - A JOURNEY THROUGH WESTERN HISPANOLA

from 40.00

Collector’s Edition limited to 1,000 copies, each numbered.

Before the earthquake in 2010 and the media storm to follow, Don Mirra was in Haiti documenting the daily lives of Haitian people.

Washed in deep color and seductive light this collection of photography, shows classical, magical and powerful images of Haiti.  Don Mirra creates photographs all over the world for clients and his own projects, but it is the people, places, colors and forms of Haiti that he has found most inspiring. His unique portraits: unposed, unstylized images of people revealing the untold story of their lives 

Living in a would-be hotel, a boys’ orphanage or a workroom were his basic living conditions. Using all forms of transportation from a motorbike, small plane, tap-tap, and “The Transporter” (his fixer’s car). Taking a sailboat that looked like it had been inspired by Winslow Homer to the island of Tortuga, and flew at 600 feet in a small plane without a door while photographing the morning light as the city of Porte-au Prince awoke. 

This book paints a vivd picture of Haiti, its color, form, chaos and human drama must be seen to be understood and felt. This solidifies Don Mirra as one of the few artist to truly capture the island of Haiti and its people. 

An unprecedented representation of the country, its people and the lives they live. Each page and image is a treasure that all photography and book collectors will cherish.
