Award-winning Haitian photographer and photojournalist Daniel Morel visited Ciné Institute during evaluation week and offered a presentation, followed by a dialogue with students on the impact of photographs taken during the January 2010 earthquake. For over 20 years, Morel has documented his native country, capturing culture, history and people. No photojournalist has covered as many presidents and coups d’état, ceremonies and pilgrimages, demonstrations and massacres, hurricanes or harvests. Morel’s photographs have appeared in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal and throughout the world. He was the resident photographer for the Associated Press for fourteen years until 2004, and has received Citation for Excellence from the Overseas Press Club of America, the AP Award of Excellence and the Sam Chavkin Prize for Integrity in Latin American Journalism. He has been the recipient of grants from the Soros / Open Society Foundation Documentary Photo Project to host a series of photo exhibitions in Haiti and New York aimed at enabling Haitian Americans and Haitians in Haiti to address their past and collaborate toward a positive future. As a Producer, his film projects include Unfinished Country about the Haiti elections that aired on Wide Angle on PBS in 2006, and When the Drum is Beating, a feature length documentary currently in post-production about the revered Haitian big band, Septentrional.
