A unique, arresting and versatile document of the traumatic earthquake which hit Haiti in 2010 and its aftermath. Encased in a cardboard box, the project comprises 16 unbound posters and a map page which draws attention to the epicentre and its rippling impact on the population of the island. The unique format allows the viewer to absorb each page individually or to hang the entire project.
The visual testimony to the events of the the first days after the event are provided by award-winning photographer Ron Haviv and the essay by esteemed writer Simon Winchester.
