From 2010, a considerable number of Haitians left their country in search of a better life in Brazil. We hit the streets to photograph and interview over 40 Haitians to hear about their outlook in the metropolis. Haitian Faces is a project created to connect the Haitian culture with the city of São Paulo. These Haitian migrants are now part of the mixed and rich culture of Brazil. The documentary project is never-ending, with the ultimate goal of understanding the cultural transformation that is felt in the centre of the city.
The project was developed in the epicentre of their migration to the city, in the Glicério neighbourhood. An exhibition will take place at UNIBES Cultural, in São Paulo, in December, 2017, till February 2018.
