Tagged: Haitian History
One of my favorite part of this site and finding old pictures of Haiti. I’m always very fascinated and wondered where and what my parents were doing when the pictures were snapped. How I wished I could place myself in the middle of these snap shots and experience what it was like to live in Haiti back in the 80s. These shots were taken taken in various places in Port-au-Prince, May 1988 by photographer Jürgen Vogt. .
These type of pictures just give me chills. Just look at the mountains, the cars and the roads. I can picture my grandparents in these pictures and understand and have more of an appreciation to the stories they tell me about the Haiti they knew growing up.
Another shoot at Sans Souci Place. This magical place never disappoints.The ruins of this once beautiful palace are a national historic site in Haiti, and a symbol of the greatness of this country. Destroyed in an earthquake that rocked the North in 1842, its mighty walls and arches still make the perfect backdrop for picture taking. These two little ones were promised candy and a possible glimpse of Anna and Elsa if they did good for the camera man. 😉 – Hunter Kittrell’s
