Come out and support Haiti!
Friday, March 5
Alpine Art Studio (downtown SLC
430 E South Temple, SLC
On March 5, 2010, Alpine Art in downtown Salt Lake City will join photographers Joel Addams and Misha Tulek in presenting images of Haiti during the month after the devastating earthquake of January 2010. Admission is free, but a $10 donation is encouraged to benefit the locally founded Healing Hands for Haiti and the Red Cross, both groups that Joel and Misha worked with in Haiti. Joel has been photographing for seven years and is currently represented by Aurora Photos, Getty Images, and Corbis. Misha Tulek, recently completed an internship with internationally-recognized photographer James Nachtwey and now freelances out of New York City.
Healing Hands for Haiti has been focused on providing prosthetics, orthopedic devices and rehabilitation for Haitians in need for over ten years. They have also extended the benefits of their organization by employing local Haitians at their medical and production facilities. Before the earthquake, the majority of the prosthetic devices used by patients were crafted in their own facility in Haiti. In addition to providing mobility devices to people who would otherwise be unable to function in a country where manual labor is a way of life, Healing Hands for Haiti also provides opportunities for the people of Haiti to gain vocational skills that enable them to support their families.
