This serie "Tents,in the camps of Anse-a-Pitres", a city on the boarder of Dominican Republic and Haiti, is here to highlight the precarious conditions of living, these people have to endure after being expelled from the Dominican Republic.

They try to survive in the middle of the cactus, the dirt, with almost nothing. The are very smart, creative and build “temporary” homes.


This has been lasting since June 2015. Hundreds of Haitian people who had to leave the Dominican Republic have had to settle there. The authorities of this city, have no budget and can do absolutely nothing.
