Description


Dramatic, confrontational images of a country enduring inconceivable upheaval and disaster

Bruce Gilden first traveled to Haiti in 1984 for the famous Mardi Gras festivities. There he discovered an impoverished territory in the grip of numerous natural disasters but charged with a unique energy. True to form, Gilden immediately departed from the beaten track, choosing to roam the length and breadth of the island along serpentine paths that led him to meet people from the four corners of the island, and into situations that few would choose to encounter.
Gilden was to visit this country that he loves so much on 18 further occasions, tirelessly documenting the everyday lives of Haitians, their history and terrain. From vendors at the markets of major cities to its nightlife and funeral ceremonies, Gilden strives to take stock of Haitian culture and its rich visual diversity.
Images from the series were first published as a slim monograph by Dewi Lewis in 1996; the book won the European Publishers Award for Photography. Atelier EXB's beautifully printed new volume greatly expands the series with previously unseen images comprising nearly half of the book.
Bruce Gilden (born 1946) has produced long and detailed photographic projects in New York, Haiti, France, Ireland, India, Russia, Japan, England and the US. He has published 18 monographs, among them, Facing New York (1992), Bleus (1994), Haiti (1996); After the Off (1999), Go (2000), Coney Island (2002), A Beautiful Catastrophe (2004), Foreclosures (2013), A Complete Examination of Middlesex (2014), Lost and Found (2019) and Cherry Blossom (2021).
