La Lettre de la Photographie Blog Reviews Tent Life: Haiti
La Lettre de la Photographie commemorates the two-year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti with a review of Wyatt Gallery's Tent Life: Haiti
by Sara Rosen. Her insightful piece honors the continued struggle of the Haitians and Gallery's powerful representation of the country and its people. “Gallery’s photographs are a testament to . . . the beauty of the human spirit that glows from within. His photographs show us that despite the worst possible circumstances, the people of Haiti have something so many of us lack: the commitment to family, to community, to rising above. Can’t hold us down, not by the forces of Man nor Nature. The photographs are at quietly shocking, such beautifully composed images of honor and pride in the face of total devastation.” Click here to read the full article.
