Human beings, of Haitian descent, living in or born in the Dominican Republic, are denied health care, education, a birth certificate and the most basic of human rights and dignity. Teenage girls are forced into prostitution. Children, when ill, receive their medicine from veterinarians, if at all. Our fellow human beings are stateless, citizens of no country.
The photographs were made in Bateyes (sugar workers’s towns) in and around Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.
