Berlin, Day 1:
After we had safely arrived in Germany (after a rather dramatic flight in a lightening storm), we immediately went to check on the set up for the Nomad Two World exhibition at a gorgeous landmarked building in Berlin called Alte Munze. Once there, we were greeted by Ute Hartien and Benjamin Jäger, both Members of the Executive Board of Camera Work AG. It was an amazing experience to see the depth of work that had been done for the Nomad Two World Haiti Project. I loved seeing the new pieces, and especially loved seeing the pieces with Hugh Jackman.
Once we had ensured that preparation for the exhibition was well underway, we had some time to enjoy Berlin. It brought back so many memories for me of experiences early in my career; it was my past, present and future coming together all at once.Learn More

The past few days have been another whirlwind of travel, culture, and creativity. I traveled to Haiti to pick up all of the last-minute artisan products that we needed for the Nomad Two Worlds exhibition in Berlin.
Once in Haiti, the day started where it all began: with Joey Adler and Richard Coles. It was so great to see the industrial revolution that they are helping to ignite with the LEED certified factory that they’re building, a place and a space for the artisan culture of Haiti to thrive and flourish.Learn More
