Haiti is a nation exploding with expression. Deep below the flow of everyday life is a rhythm that knows innately how to celebrate being alive -- a giving of memory to all of the senses. You will see it in the color of carnival or in the white upon white at first communion. Listen and you will hear it in the familiar ring of the shoeshiner's bell as he passes in the street, and in the laughter of storytelling by candlelight at night. Photographer Carl Hiebert and writers Anthony Phelps, Sandy Noble Yates and Syto Cave present this Haiti, loved and calling to be remembered. Where Light Speaks is a rediscovery, not only of what is Haitian, but of what is human.
