En bas la ville

Gaël Turine

Port-au-Prince is a feverish and luminous city. Its center, anba lavil in Haitian Creole, is the heart of this series. The photographs reveal the chaos and poetry of a fragile and fascinating city.

Port au Prince has a unique soul and identity, made of a rich, complex and sore history.

The ambiant tropical lights, dense colors and all materials, make the streets a permanent scenery.

In a second, Port-au-Prince, makes you pass from the fear to the smile,
In a second, from revolt to wonder,
Port-au-Prince, every day, wakes up, stretches, shakes, heats, runs and gets angry,
Every day screams, sings, embraces and smiles,
Every day,
With the harsh beauty of the living.
