Photographs of Haitian communities focus of special exhibition


Images of life and daily activities in Haitian communities will be the focus of a special exhibition in February at the University of Miami’s Wynwood Project Space.

Presented by UM’s Department of Art and Art History, “Haiti FotoKonbit: Third Vernacular Photography” will feature photographs taken by Haitians in their home country and Miami.

The exhibition runs from February 8-25 at Wynwood Project Space, 2200A NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, with an opening reception on Saturday, February 12 from 6 to 10 p.m.

FotoKonbit is a movement created to engage and empower Haitians to tell their own stories and document their communities through photography.

Inspired by the Creole word “konbit,” which can be defined as the coming together of similar talents in an effort toward a common goal, FotoKonbit educators use their skills as photographers, educators, and artists to impact the lives of their participants and the public through photography. By partnering with established Haitian grassroots organizations in Haiti and in the Haitian Diaspora, FotoKonbit is uniquely positioned to inspire hope through creative expression and provide Haitians with the opportunity to document their reality and share it with the largest possible audience.

A full schedule of exhibitions can be viewed at www.as.miami.edu/art. For more information about the exhibition or Wynwood Project Space, call 305-284-2543 or e-mail [email protected].
