Mike Larremore’s “Forgotten In The Face Of Crisis”

Last year photographer Mike Larremore traveled to a disaster-struck Haiti a scant month after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit the small country. Working in partnership with United States and international teams, Mike took thousands of photographs documenting the medical relief work in Port au Prince, Haiti from February 19th to March 1st, 2010. Rather than focus on carnage and rubble, he photographed the courage and strength present in the Haitian people. Now in honor of the one-year anniversary, sixteen of these images will be on display at Sequential Art Gallery through the month of February. His images show the never-ending hard work of the medical teams and illuminate a side of Haiti perhaps forgotten in the face of crisis. Opening reception will be First Thursday February 3, from 6-10pm.

For those not attending First Thursday, we will also be livestreaming the evening at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sequential-art-gallery-studio. Sequential Art Gallery is open for regular gallery hours Thursdays (3pm-7pm) and Saturdays (11am-5pm) or by appointment. Please note that while not directly graphic in nature, many of these photographs depict emergency medical efforts, and may not be recommended for young children.

Mike Larremore is a professional photographer living in Portland, Oregon. His career began while living in Europe, shooting portraits and street scenes in Florence, Italy.
