Thank you for your responses, Vanessa!

I really just stumbled on her beautiful images of Haiti! After following her for some time now, I appreciate her penchant for squared up perspectives of people passing by. She nails the atmosphere and shadows in a way that is reminiscent of Kara Walker but in this medium and the extreme darkness at times really heightens this sentiment. Just really beautiful work that shows a part of Haiti we don’t get to see in people simply living their lives passing by everyday. For more check her links below:
