Kedar has lived in Haiti for over 20 years, and has recently been dedicating his efforts to combat the destruction and aid the citizens of Haiti. All the profits raised from the exhibition will be used to build a school in Haiti for children who are currently studying in temporary tents.




The exhibition, which is set to open on March 11, documents the rich culture that is unique to the beach town of Jackmel in Haiti.





The pictures capture the carnival procession with rare shots of the costumes and the preparation process, a celebration of sensual characters clouded in glamour, bright colors and extravagant masks
