15-30 June 2010. This exhibition, entitled Haiti, the Melancholy of Shadows, displays work by the Peruvian photographer Moises Saman taken in two different moments: after the elections of 2006 and after the earthquake that devastated the Caribbean country in January 2010. The images testify to life and death in a country that for many years has been forgotten or even denied.
Saman has worked as a professional photographer in New York since 2000. He has focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and on different projects in Pakistan, Nepal, Cuba, Lebanon and Haiti. He is currently a contributor to The New York Times, Newsweek and Human Rights Watch.
