The country of Haiti is full of mountains, people and life. However, the life is not always beautiful due to the living conditions that exist and have existed for years upon years. Some of the photos that I captured in 2015 were of children and focused on the lives they lived. I never aimed for the photos of children I took to come across as sad while in Haiti. In fact, most children smiled continuously and played exhaustively. Haiti is filled with over 10.6 million residents and is equal in size to the small state of Massachusetts. However, Haiti has nearly twice the population of Massachusetts. In case you’re curious, Massachusetts is the 7th smallest state in the United States when you look at the total square miles of land.

Cuba is one of those mystical places that Americans in the pre 1950’s called their vacation wonderland. It was a place of fine cigars, exciting night spots and a clear blue ocean. Over the years big changes took place and Cuba was ousted from the map for travel destinations.
