About the Digital Collection
Gary Monroe photographed extensively in Haiti from 1980 to 1998. This selection of one hundred prints documents life in Haiti and in Haitian communities in Florida, including the I.N.S. Krome Resettlement Camp in Miami where refugees were detained. Monroe made over twenty trips to Haiti. He used local transportation "tap-taps" to get around the island, photographing in Port-Au-Prince, Cap-Haïtien, Lina, Jacmel and many other places, some not found on maps. He captured images of daily life including political rallies, marketplaces, educational facilities, workers, and religious ceremonies. In his home state of Florida, Gary Monroe documented the establishment and growth of Haitian communities in South and Central Florida as well as the living conditions of refugees detained at Krome Camp.
