About the project
The HAITI exhibition trough the eye was held in Milan, at Palazzo Isimbardi, by the famous fashion photographer Stefano Guindani, dedicated to the photographs taken in Haiti before, during and after the 2010 earthquake. The most recent photos taken by Guindani in Haiti portray evocative moments of the Catholic and Voodoo ritual, Saut d'Eau, which in the month of July pushes thousands of pilgrims to the falls of Sodo', where, it is said, 150 years ago it appeared the spirit of the Virgin Mary. The ceremony includes an ablution under the waterfall, in this way the Haitians practicing the Voodoo hope that Erzulie Dantor, Spirit of Water, Motherhood and Love, give them a moment of peace and happiness, removing suffering, hunger and poverty. Catholics, on the other hand, mean this ritual washing as an act of purification and rebirth. The HAITI trough the eye exhibition was a tribute to "Fondazione Francesca Rava - N.P.H. Italia Onlus and realised thanks to the collaboration with My-Loft Gallery and Stefano Guidani. The proceeds were donated to the same foundation Francesca Rava and NPH Italia Onlus for the Saint Damien Children's Hospital in Haiti. Honegger was engaged of the event artistic direction, as well as the ideation and realisation of the exhibition area, hosted in the My-Loft Gallery space.
