Give and Receive

I think anyone would jump at the chance to help the enormous need in Haiti.  Vogue has printed seven rarely seen images from Cecil Beaton, who was on assignment for Vogue in Haiti in 1935 and fifty percent of the $149 purchase price goes to the Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund. Looking at the photos it seems that Cecil Beaton was captured by the magnificent and grand beauty of Haiti itself.  I like to see them as an opportunity to contribute something towards the rebuilding of a country tattered by a disaster and as a optimistic look that amid the ruins, there is still the incredible beauty of the country and its people.  Click here  for more information.
