About this series:

While staying in the neighborhood of Carrefour Feuilles in Port-au-Prince, I stumbled upon the ruins of a huge tuberculosis sanatorium which was surrounded by a tent community of displaced people. One of the buildings was decorated with beautiful charcoal drawings, which I later found out was the work of a Rodney, a young artist and a resident in one of the nearby tents.

After many misses I was finally able to meet Rodney - who primarily uses cooking charcoal for his creations. He explained to me that he created this work because it brought joy to his friends and neighbors to look at the artwork.

"Like an art gallery for the neighborhood?" I asked him.

"No," he replied. "Like a musuem."
