Haiti / Dominican Republic

Downtown Port-au-Prince, September 2010. Not much has changed in the eight months following the quake.

Select photographic and video documentation from a research trip to Port-au-Prince and neighboring regions, eight months after the 2010 earthquake. The trip was geared towards exploration of social, economic, and political division, reflected in the vast diversity of landscape. Part of the research involved documenting the border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti through aerial fly-overs and on-the-ground site visits. Extensive documentation included hundreds of images, hours of video footage, studies, and interviews with people of the region.

The trip was made possible by funding from the Lower East Side Printshop Special Residency Program and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship.
