Tragically, the truth of the matter is for most people these images and thoughts reeks into their mind and are not reassuring. Images that are portrayed in the media will usually show the worst of Haitian society and culture. The Images are usually of the worst Haitian gutters, People of Haiti are frequently portrayed to be uneducated, angry, violent, helpless and always waiting for rescue. Haiti is the Western Hemispheres poorest country- many people always ask or wonder -- Why is Haiti so poor? Why is Haiti always facing political turmoil?

Why are so many rejected boat people coming to the shores of Florida? Will Haiti ever change and how? The answer to these questions is very complicated to answer and to understand. Despite the tale of tragedy and violence, epic poverty and political turmoil there is still so much beauty in this tiny island. There is beauty in the way of the people, their history, their culture and their passions. Haiti boasts a creative, exotic culture whose roots run deep from Africa to France, and to The Caribbean.

Haitian art is notable worldwide from primitive styles to hand made sculptures, and to paintings that tell stories. Haiti: A different image captures a more stirring view of Haiti-- a stark land of contrast, the beauty of the land, its dynamic history and unique culture and validates why Haiti was once called La Pearle des Antilles.
