Leah Gordon

Photographer, filmmaker, curator

Photographer, filmmaker, curator and folk historian

I have been working on and in Haiti since 1991 as a filmaker, photographer and curator. A book of my photographs and collected oral histories of Haiti's Jacmel carnival, called 'Kanaval: Vodou, Politics & Revolution on the Streets of Haiti' comes out in May 2010, pub. by Soul Jazz Publishing.

My photographic work is represented by Riflemaker, Soho, London.

Currently I am working alongside the Sculptors of Grand Rue, an artists' community in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We held the 'Ghetto Biennale', the first arts festival located in a popular neighbourhood in the developing world. In December 2009, artists from around the globe came to Haiti, to make and exhibit work. An archive of the event is available on the website.
