NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale has organized this exhibition with renowned Haitian-American artist, Edouard Duval-Carrié, as guest curator. It explores the history of photography in Haiti, and how the nation and its people have been represented by its own (Within) and other (Without) photographers and photojournalists from the 19th century advent of photography to the present. Its numerous works from photography albums, archives, family snapshots, photography studios, photojournalism, and by contemporary artists, demonstrate how photography and art have documented Haitian life and culture and shaped perceptions of them, especially during times of natural disaster, and political and social unrest. The exhibition provides the first comprehensive history of photography of Haiti and offers new and revelatory perspectives on this nation and its people. The exhibition catalogue includes 95 reproductions, an extensive bibliography, and essays by Duval-Carrié, noted Haitian historians of Haitian art and culture, photojournalists and writers. They include: Margaret Mitchell Armand, Lauren DuBois, Emilie Boone, Donald Cosentino, Edwidge Danticat, Kimberly Green, Maggie Stever, and Alfredo Rivera.
