Overview

HAITI IN CENTRAL PARK is a refreshing re-introduction to Haiti. Cut from two different cloths and natives of one city, Brian Fass and Gregory Jesus Luc have collaborated to expose and document one of the many different ethnic groups, which make up New York City. HICP highlights a mixture of: art, fashion, history, music, pride, socio-politics, spirituality; and how these customs have transcended into NYC and throughout North America.

Central Park, one of New York City's top must-see attractions, has been the host to this unique form of festival music since early 1990's. An essential space that welcomes over 50 million visitors annually, every Sunday afternoon during the summer months (still to this day) you can catch this celebratory experience/ community gathering between 'The Mall' (a walkway/gathering area; CP boasts one of the largest plantation of American elm) and the 'Bandshell' (a cultural iconic stage near very center of Central Park; Martin Luther King Jr. spoke; John Lennon's eulogy hosted) playing well into the late evening. Their presence has contributed to the rebuilding and the restoring of the intention of Central Park.

A culture so very often misunderstood, paralyzed by negative press, shady politics and xenophobia, HICP gives you a candid introduction of Haiti through the caption of the Haitian Diaspora and friends in New York City. Shot between the years 2010-15, Brian's abstract, fluid-motion photography matched with Jesus' contextual data appropriates the propaganda, establishes a historical record, and gives insight; thus filing a time-piece in New York City history.

This book, not only serves as a showcase, but it is an educational and historical contribution. We pay homage to a group, whom we recognize has contributed so much to the legacy of America.
