As a follow-up to our previous post on the launch of a limited edition 2017 Haiti Calendar featuring Haitian-born actor and philanthropist, Jimmy Jean-Louis, I would like to share the link with purchasing information and samples of the iconic photographs included in the calendar.
As Amazon announces, these are “breathtaking images of Jimmy Jean-Louis in some of Haiti’s most beautiful locations.” Shot by world-renowned celebrity photographer Marc Baptiste—who has photographed Beyonce, Yoko Ono, and President Barack Obama—the calendar is indeed spectacular.
It is important to keep in mind that the main goal is to project positive images of Haiti, and to change perceptions of the country.
As we previously pointed out, Jean-Louis will release the calendars during the African Diaspora International Film Festival in New York and will be on hand to autograph the calendars.
