Well, this post has been a long time coming. I wish I would have gotten it up sooner, but better late then never.
Last month, I got the amazing opportunity to travel to Haiti for a photo documentary. I was working with this incredible non-profit organization called Poverty Resolutions.
Now, I didn’t even know I was going on this trip until about 4 days before. It was basically like “hey we need you can you go?” and I packed my bags, jumped on a plane and went to Haiti. I honestly didn’t have much time to plan or prepare myself. but Lord willing, everything worked out.
I didn’t know what to expect on this trip. but what I saw and experienced, was life changing. I was more humbled then I ever have been before. I saw a group of people, working together to create again what they once had. People who had no house, clothes, or even food coming together and loving those around them. A community of people trying to fix what the earthquake has destroyed. Although there are some rough parts of the city, Haiti is surprisingly beautiful. What the news shows, is the destruction, but there is such beautiy in Haiti.
I got the chance to go around to many different schools and orphanages while in Haiti. Most of the children have never seen a camera before, so they were more then excited for me to take their photo.
I picked out some of my favorite photographs from this trip. I hope you can enjoy and get a glimpse of how beautiful Haiti truly is.
Also, please take some time to check out Poverty Resolutions. Their goal is to build up Haiti again and help small business. What they’re doing is incredible and extremely helpful and life changing.
