Haiti: fragmentsAdd to Lightbox Download
Fragments from a broken nation. It's not easy to describe Haiti. The scars of the earthquake, the dust that hangs in the air like a fog sticks in your throat, the shaken faces of people who have seen the worst side of tragedy. An inferno. Nor is it easy to understand Haiti. Desperation and intense pride walk hand in hand, the proud character of ex-slaves intermixes with a listlessness marked by disaster upon disaster. January 12, 2010, a catastrophic earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale strikes, causing 250,000 death and 3 million refugees. This earthquake was the last straw, the final blow that shattered all hope of improvement, every sign of progress in a society that had shakenoff its chains of physical slavery but not those of mental and economic slavery. Haiti, therefore, seems hopeless. But fortunately, it's isn't so ( ). This book does not pretend to tell the story of an entire nation. As the title says, "Haiti: fragments", hopes to show, through images that are simply fragments of real life, the current situation in a broken nation, A nation on its kneees, trying to find itself by picking up the pieces.
