For the past twenty years Stefano Guindani's ruling passion has been photography in all its guises. In this latest work he explores a particularly difficult social theme: children in Haiti. In no other country in the western hemisphere do children run such a high risk of death while still in their infancy as those born in Haiti. Thousands of Haitian children fight for survival on a daily basis. In rural areas they have no access to the most basic of public services, often having to walk miles to get health care or even find a water supply. But despite being one of the poorest countries in the world, where 70% of the population is unemployed, talent and energy abound, as the Rava Foundation has discovered. Registered charity Rava works to promote awareness, sponsorship for children and voluntary work, as well as running an orphanage, schools, a pediatric hospital and a rehabilitation centre for handicapped children on the island. Guidani's very moving shots capture a world of hope without any trace of pity or commiseration for children who can still trust in the future and, despite all, view their world with eternal optimism.
