For Little Haiti
These photographs I took are dedicated to memory and the narratives of immigrants that are often spoken in quieter tones. Taken in the little Haiti community of Miami, these faces represent the Haitian immigrants that have been turned away at many a shoreline, and have seen their neighborhood transformed into a trendy Miami art district that does not reflect their culture. The image of Marcus Garvey around the neck of the young man, reminds me my own family migration story and the many Caribbean immigrants whose struggles don’t always make the headlines. Next month, I am continuing the series with the hopes of using photography to build lesser told stories around gentrification in Miami communities.
