About the Project: Haiti Lives is a photography exhibition that was organised by Oxfam, to show the recovery work that Oxfam is carrying out in Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake of January 2010. The exhibition featured 30 beautiful, inspiring images taken by photojournalist Ami Vitale, Jane Beesley of Oxfam and Jorge Silva of Reuters, and was on display in Dublin’s Powerscourt Townhouse Centre for the month of July.

I was in charge of designing the identity and all materials for the exhibition, and preparing the photographs for print and display.  Materials included a brochure, a poster, exhibition display graphics, the photo captions, large form prints for the windows of the exhibition and giant round 4m2 displays for the Powerscourt Centre.

The exhibition’s run in Dublin was extremely successful, attracting a large number of visitors and garnering very positive press coverage, including a feature on RTE News.  You can see the photographs that appeared in the exhibition on the Oxfam Ireland website.
