Dancing on Fire: Photographs from Haiti
Thursday, November 14, 2013 6:30-8:00pm

This Iris Nights lecture centers on Steber’s 30 years of work in Haiti, and takes viewers through the Shakespearean epic that describes a small country that thinks of itself as the biggest in the world.  To Steber, Haiti is an ache in the bones, bittersweet with excruciating beauty and a sometime violence that stems from impossible poverty and politics.  Her widely published and exhibited photographs go beyond disaster coverage to weave a tale of intrigue and dizzying history.
