|On The Road To Cap Haitien|
|Woman In The Market|
Haiti was in 1989 the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and as we all know, still is! In my naivete I took photos of everyone that would allow me to photograph them until a man showed me a very large knife. Hans said, "That's enough of the photography for now"! I soon discovered that most of the people did not enjoy having me take their pictures, something about losing their souls through the photo. It has to do with the prevalence of the religion VOODOO.
I hope that you will enjoy seeing a few of those photos and the lovely and charming people in them. I think of them, and wonder where they might be now.....
