Kanaval


Released last year but only just coming to my attention recently Leah Gordon’s ‘Kanaval’ is a photography book worth checking out. Published by Soul Jazz, It features images from the streets of Haiti during Kanaval in the town of Jacmel.

 

It was picked by PDN as one of the best of the year and it’s easy to see why. The pictures are visceral rather than academic and the presentation is very lo-fi which suits the images.

The photos themselves are some of the most disturbing and exhilarating you’re likely to see. When you consider the brutality of Haiti’s history that is hardly surprising
