is a story I published in the November 2016 issue of Jacobin Magazine. It is an survey of the work I'd done to that point in northern Haiti, living with people who work in a factory that makes clothing for the US and other countries.
This page will be updated over time to include photos from sub-narratives in that story. There's Jean-Louis, an elderly man who was among the hundreds whose land was taken to build the factory. There is the couple who took me into their home for the better part of a month, allowing me to photograph what life is like for workers in the $3-4 per day income bracket. There are the many workers I've met who have no option but to leave their towns and families to give their lives to factory labor.
I'll be returning this winter to wrap up as best I can in the north and continue the story where it started, in Haiti's capital, where the promise of a better life has many decades later failed to reach Hanes', Levis' and others' slum-dwelling laborers.
