14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Vodou

I love traveling to places where I think my photos are going to have an impact. This time I went to Haiti and accompanied a group of vodouisants on their four hour walk to the falls of Saut d'Eau. Simon, a vodouisant, says: "I finally was able to go to Saut d’Eau for the Our Lady of Mount Carmel festival. The cool waters and sound of the falls are big contrast to the heat, dirt and chaos of Port au Prince. If I could, I would stay submerged as long as possible."
