"A week in the life of Haiti Cherie" internationally supported project just one month away
Seoul, South Korea – Jan. 9 /Photography News/ – Today marks five weeks point from the launching of “A week in the life of Haiti Cherie” the photo book and school project slated for Haiti.
More than 20 international photographers and photojournalists have volunteered to travel to Haiti in order to document all aspects of Haitian life for one week and produce a large format volume as a testament to Haiti.
“This is going to be the most talked about photo book on Haiti ever” predicts the project founder and current program manager Phil Anglade. “We have been planning this for more than 10 years and to see it finally come about is truly gratifying”
The international photographers and photojournalists who will be contributing their time and effort to the project are from Hungary, Taiwan, France, Estonia, The Netherlands, Thailand, Israel, South Africa, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Venezuela, Korea, USA and of course Haiti…to name a few. They will travel to every corner of Haiti and truly experience Haitian life before, during and after Carnival 2010.
A documentary film entitled “Behind the scene of Haiti Cherie” is also planned with support from various universities and media professionals.
A full week of activities is envisioned throughout the week and ending with the ground breaking ceremony for the school.
The “Haiti Cherie” photography and media production school will offer a wide variety of courses to equip under privilege young adults with marketable skills they will in turn be able to use in order to support themselves.
