Haiti 12 January 2010

Photographs: Ron Haviv

VII photographer Rob Haviv arrived in Haiti the day after the earthquake to document th events the unfolded in the aftermath. 

 

Ron- congratulations on this magnificent exhibit-again. Margaret Spillane and I also saw it in Dumbo-- It remains haunting.

-Al Gest, Bruce Shypo

Powerful images. The display is simple, yet elegant.

Thank you for making this work available for us to see and feel.

- Josie Gray, Beacon

Yet again, Ron has captured moments of history, that will stay with us to inform us. Thank you for showing these images and make us a step closer to understanding and connecting to a moment in time so precious and so important.

-Samar Margoon

Some poignant images of another tragic time in the history of Haiti... I just hope the world will not lose its focuse and vision in remaining with a helping hand to a people who need us.

-Nira Weinberg Donan

This work has the same effect on me as seeing the Rwandan "Victims of Rape" images-- makes me want to cry with the injustice of it all. 

-Helen Fros

I love your art so much.

Thank you for making us remember!

May you continue to tell the peoples' story. May God continue to bless the work of your hands.

- Tiffany

So moving! Ron Haviv is an amazing photographer and Haiti needs help!

- Nicole T

What an incredible, yet horrifying display! Thank you for putting faces to this awful story!

Thank you for your beautiful, moving, terrifying exhibit. The photographs salute the courage of these people.

HARD RAIN (from memory to history)

The series of images chosen, alongside the closing line of B. Dylan's final verse of "It's a hard rain ...", "and I'll know my song well before I start singing," successfully prove/reveal that Anthony surely grasps the notion of capturing that "hard rain" that has come down as a dark cloud on humanity's progress and history. Though many can say that war/conflict/suffering can and has offered/produced positive resolution and solutions, it is not without these reminders (photographs) that we can realize the weight these actions carry with them; and perpetually work toward new ways of progressing on this finite plane of time on our earth. Thank you, Anthony, for stopping by that burning pile of rubble and photographing that scene in '93, and keeping your eye on the humans always struggling for peace of mind.
-Daniel

 Very powerful. Very disturbing, as it should be.
 -Mark 

Incredible and bizarre - so strange to drink wine in a quiet town faced with such reality.

Great images, well presented. Thank you Ron, for your vision and hard work.

Beautiful, Tony! Cheers, Alan.

Appreciated the Suau lecture/exhibit.

Suggestion: Explore alternate historians (Michael Tsarion, Jordan Maxwell, Bill Cooper, etc.)

The single most offensive photo is Cheney's. Well done.
-Dan

Important and impressive work. 

Really important to have such kinds of exhibitions here. Good to see that there are still people following a non-profit, non-commercial approach.
-Angele

Exhibits like these help people to wake up from a dream. Open your eyes to see what goes on in this world.

Hey Tony. Wonderful show! Thank you for staying with it despite all the challenges. What you do is very important!
-Tom

Spectacular!!

Great work. Sad world!

So many wars.
-Martin

Great presentation.

Thank you again, Stephanie for putting together another set of photos for a slideshow. Really nice to come see.
-Willie

Cool.

Interesting, would love to hear you speak. Please email any event.

Wonderful, powerful exhibit. Thanks, Judith.

Timely.

Very powerful - true reminder of what war is about. Thanks.
 -Alexandre

 Impressive!

 Stunning photographs. I've never seen my 15 year old daughter speechless while reading every word in every caption. These photos should be on CNN, in People, USA Today. and other media outlets of Middle America.

 It's so courageuos of you to bring these images out of hiding; it makes me want to help. How can I? Thank you.
-Sherie

Thank you for showing us this - it's odd as we drink wine and socialize on 2nd Saturday - that there is this horror continuing.
-Sheila and Bert

Very powerful show and subject matter.

Congratulations, Andrew. It's an inspiring body of work.

-Willie (ICO '05)

Unsettling, thought-provoking. Thanks, Kevin.

Congratulations. They are all so powerful, but I can't get the image of the depressed man out of my mind. 

-Kelly

Congratulations! Ditto to the above.

Sabine, Stephanie: Such an inspiring show. Keep it up.

-Alex

I'm very moved, angry, depressed by this exhibit. I don't know how to act, but something must be done. WVCR's "Fancy Brocolli" is one avenue of action. Thank you for giving light to an abominable situation.

-Creek

Thank you, Andrew. An important body of work and an issue that is largely ignored. Poignant. Powerful.

-Raeford

Great work, again, as always.

-Jen/Brian

Very Powerful.

-Will

Thank you! This was very powerful - especially the teenager in for 25.

-Nina

A thoughtful and provokng exhibit.

-Ursula

was very moved by the intensity of your photos.

-Maeve

Powerful work!

-Stew

Moving and provocative - will pass the word.

Very moving and emotional. This work captures the real and often forgotten humanity behind bars.

-Tommy

Thank you for your caring. I've been incarcerated and I remember thinking at the time, "If only people could see/know what goes on." Thank you.

-Sara

Strong. 

Andrew, so glad to have seen your show. Impressed by your work.

-Sandra

Enjoyed a fascinating conversation with Stephanie. The work is quite compelling.

-John

Powerful exhibit!

-David

Andrew - love the exhibition and looking forwad to running into you again in Carroll Gardens. Love - your student, neighbor and friend.

Abu Ghraib seems less of an anomaly....

What a marvelous contribution - so this is our humanity - tragic!

-Lillian

Wonderful, important work!

I worked as a jail librarian in Seattle many years ago (city and county). This is important: to bring light to their darkness, and shame to a society which promotes and tolerates such horrors. America's failures are shoved into dark corners, where they are treated as refuse. Their existence shows our moral and ethical failures as a society.

Very interesting work ... wish I could get involved in prison reform. You've made a wonderful exhibition and the artisit very thought-provoking photos. Thanks, Cesar.

Very moving. I see the impact of the prison system on children. Devastating.

This was amazing; even for me, who has been doing prison work for nearly 40 years - since Attica. New York has actually come far. Texas not so much.

-Hy

Your work is very touching and honest. Thanking you for bringing your work here to Beacon for free!

-Marisa

Thank you for your educational exhibits. The historical information provided at each one is needed and more than welcome. Continued good wishes for contributing to humankind. We are all one love.
