Arriving in Haiti in the tumultuous aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, Wyatt Gallery photographed the tent communities that are now synonymous with the areas surrounding Port-au-Prince, Haiti. While their homes have been destroyed, Gallery’s subjects remain hopeful and resilient within the larger context of housing and water issues that challenge their country today. All royalties from the book go towards Healing Haiti and other Haitian charities.

Wyatt Gallery is an award-winning photographer who has been published in The New York Times, Esquire, Mother Jones, Newsweek, and more.

Review:

"Stunning work...All royalties from the book [will be] going towards Healing Haiti, among other charities." —Flavorpill

"[T]he images single out space, public and private: the vast patchwork vista of flat-topped tarpaulins, the destroyed buildings, the brightly colored trash heaps, the makeshift beauty parlor, the shady tents, the carefully packed suitcases, the immaculately made beds—and show how Haitians are finding comfort, creating normalcy, and continuing to endure..." —Publishers Weekly

"'Better that we are ugly, but we are here,' is the Haitian proverb that opens Tent Life: Haiti, which chronicles photographer Wyatt Gallery's visit to the island after the 2010 earthquake. And although the images are sobering—reflecting the realities of life in sprawling 'cities' constructed from bedsheets and sticks—they are not ugly."—Condé Nast Traveler

"The March earthquake and tsunami in Japan have driven the dire predicament in Haiti from the headlines and, perhaps, from our collective consciousness. This makes "Tent Life: Haiti," a poignant and beautiful work of photojournalism, especially timely and important." —Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A rich depiction of profound dignity in the wake of devastation; Wyatt Gallery's portraits are an artful and unselfconscious study of an irrepressible people." —Sean Penn, founder, J/P Haitian Relief Organization

"Wyatt Gallery's photos offer an intimate glimpse of life in Haiti after the shock, revealing a determination to create order and peace, and a decided resilience amidst catastrophic circumstance." —Santigold, singer
