Young photographers exhibit their view on Haiti todayPOSTED: 08/28/12 11:37 AM
ORANJESTAD – Six young photographers and video artists from Haiti take part in an exposition in Aruba, entitled Ayiti, Mirades contemporaneas. The artists show the daily life on the poverty stricken island but also more controversial topics like poverty and voodoo.
Until 2000 the visual arts and photography in Haiti were dominated by commercial and tourism images and by journalistic clichés, photographer Josué Azor says.
The exhibition includes videos showing amongst others topics like religion, deteriorated buildings, freedom fighters and street dogs. The exhibition remains open for another month at the National Archive in Sabana Blanco.
