Lives in (R)evolution brings stories of people who neither seek to be included in the reporting of foreign journalists, nor have they become migrants, rather, they have stayed in Haiti, and for that reason are not frequently featured in the stories that reach the global North. People who have their own words and their own voice, and who invite the wider world to connect with them through shared themes and experiences such as family, motherhood, faith, talent, art and resilience. This exhibit aims to refocus the lens through which Haitians have typically been presented in the United States. The photographs acknowledge the material difficulties or the challenges inherent in the daily routines of most people living in Haiti, but they encourage the viewer to look at the moments of life recorded on the pictures through a humanizing, artistic frame, and to recognize aspects of themselves in the people presented on them.
About the Artist
Ildi Tillmann is an emerging author and photographer working at the crossroads of art and documentary. She was born and raised in Hungary, and she has been living on Long Island, in the United States, over the past twenty years. Ms Tillmann’s artistic approach is informed by the various cultures she has seen and experienced, the languages she speaks, and the people she has met through her life, all of which have confirmed her faith in our shared human fate. Her experiences have encouraged her to see beyond national, ethnic, religious or racial differences and to highlight the cyclical nature of stories inherent to the human condition.
