Haiti in the Time of Baby Doc.......

.........are photographs mostly utilizing 35 mm slide film I took during seven trips to Haiti from 1978 to 1979. I was inspired by the naive art that a friends parents had brought back to Boston in the 1950's.  My intent was to purchase and ship back to the U.S. several pieces mostly metal sculpture for sale.  I did sell several and kept a few some of which are still available.  I traveled by rental car all over the island meeting with gallery owners, artists and musicians.  Haiti encompasses the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola.  I did also visit once the Dominican Republic which sits on the western half. There is a lot of information on Haiti, it's history, people. struggles, art and music available.  My intent here is only to showcase a slice of life that existed during the late 1970's and to gauge the interest in licensing one or more images for furthur distribution and use.
