One year has passed since the terrible earthquake that destroyed the island of Haiti. People have been struggling and working very hard to rebuild their homes, hospitals, schools. Life goes on. Some people die other are born. Tears and smiles. Fears and hopes.
American photographer Bruce Weber started his touching and beautiful work on Haitian community, long before the earthquake, as a response to the U.S. immigration system detaining indefinitely Haitian people and not releasing them to family and friends while waiting for asylum hearings. Since then he immersed in the Haitian community in Miami and has continued his photographic work until now.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Miami, U.S.A., presents Bruce Weber’s amazing photographs from November 19, 2010 to February 13, 2011, and include a collection of about 75 photos taken from 2003 to 2010.
Photographs are sometimes stronger than words.
