Acrylic Print: Dance de la Musique
This photo captures the early days of Ecole L’Union when the dirt playground was the stage for the children to have fun and express themselves. Benjamin Cole loved to capture the personalities of the children and this photo does that beautifully. Today this play area continues to be just as lively. It has evolved to become the home of a basketball court and a separate playground. It is also a common area where students and staff can gather for special events and to welcome those who visit the school.Cole always said this was one of his favourite photos that he had taken. He felt hope and yet sadness when he looked at it. He took this picture during his time in Haiti in 2010, right after the earthquake. His world view was greatly shaken during his time there. It ignited a passion in him to make a difference in Haiti and the Dominican Republic and advocate for the poorest of the poor.
