Onè Respe - A Photographic Benefit for the Survivors of the Haiti Earthquake

    Newer Older

    for sale now on Magcloud: magcloud.com/browse/Issue/57597

    By now you have heard of the devastation caused by the massive earthquake in Haiti. Reports are still coming in, and the full measure of the damage is still not known. Hospitals, residences and government buildings have collapsed or have been heavily damaged. In interviews, Haitian officials have asked all friends of Haiti to please provide any assistance possible to the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. They are in desperate need of medical and disaster relief supplies.

    We asked several photographers to donate the use of one or more of their works to help create this issue as a fund-raising photography magazine to benefit Haiti with all proceeds from this magazine to be donated to the International Red Cross. The title Haiti: Onè Respe comes from a traditional Haitian greeting meaning “honor and respect.”

      I've tweeted this and will do so again.

      I don't have any photos of Haiti, however if you do another benefit book of general photos, I'd be glad to contribute.

      Thanks for thinking of this...

      My heart broke when I red the news today from two fellow natives who gave their lives to protect their adoption child while staying in a hotel in Haiti.
      As for the victims it is my wish that they will not be forgotten. Especially those who have no arms to embrase them and are to small to understand what happened to them.
      They all need us and I have a strong feeling we all need them.
      Godspeed to ya'll.
