My Heart Won't Let You Go

Pulitzer Prize Winner Patrick Farrell shares a collection of his candid photographs captured during some of the most trying moments Haiti and its people have endured over the past two decades. This exhibition reminds us of our vulnerabilities and limitations in the presence of nature and that our moral responsibility to fellow man is truly a responsibility to ourselves. All proceeds from the exhibition will go towards funding the award-winning Haitian dance company Ayikodans who are on the brink of loosing their dance studio. There will be cocktails provided by Hennessy Black.

Farrell has been a photographer at The Miami Herald since 1987 and was the recipient of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for his photographs of the devastation in Haiti caused by a particularly brutal hurricane season.

Farrell has won numerous awards for his coverage of Haiti, including the first place 2009 National Headliner Award for Photo Essay, two first place awards in 2008 from Pictures of the Year International, and a Feature Photography Award in 2008 from the Overseas Press Club. Farrell has been named Region Six Photographer of the Year twice (in 1992 and 1993) by the National Press Photographers Association.
