Auxiliaris for Haiti

A Group Show highlighting the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti

Photographers Andrés Leighton (Associated Press), Alvin J. Baez (El Vocero), José Jiménez Tirado (Auxiliaris), Frank Elias, Ramon Tonito Zayas (El Nuevo Día), Ricardo Arduengo (Associated Press) and Xavier Araujo (El Nuevo Dia), traveled to Haiti to document the tragic earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010.

As they covered the catastrophe, each photographer agreed to support a handful of orphanages overwhelmed by so much need. From this experience, the exhibition “Auxiliaries for Haiti” was born. It was first presented at the Puerto Rico Museum of Contemporary Art on February 25, 2010 with a mission to raise funds for the Foundation Enfants Jesus asylum.

During the last two years it has since been exhibited throughout the island, in coordination with other charitable efforts, raising awareness in terms of Haiti’s continuous need of humanitarian assistance.

Casual Thinking

Featuring the work of Jay García

Casual Thinking is a reflection of the way J. Garcia sees and captures random moments of his life. His photography is never staged, but sometimes searched for. He has set out to document the encounters, and moments that have casually stumbled upon him. It reflects not only the way he shoots, it also represents his life, the way he skates, edits and loves. Without much analyzing involved, and running into situations, strangers, and life long friends. It is simply a pure way to go about the things that have inspired him. Inspired by the work of Henri Cartier Bresson, André Kertész, William Eggleston, Alec Soth and Kwaku Alston—this is a collection of images all shot on film while on the move. From skateboarding around the world, touring with Draco Rosa, and living in Los Angeles, CA. J. García tries to share his experiences in their most natural form.
