Day of the Dead in Haiti

vodou

In commemoration of the Day of the Dead, celebrated yesterday throughout the Caribbean, here is a photo by Associated Press photographer Ramon Espinosa. The photo, of a man performing a Vodou ritual during Day of the Dead celebrations at the national cemetery in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is one of the many remarkable shots by Espinosa we have included in the blog. I know nothing about Espinosa, other than the outstanding photos through which he captures the realities of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. So here, yet again, is one of his great photos.
