A recent article from Oxfam America, called 'In a battle against the bugs, Haitian farmers win, thanks to better coordination' by Kevin Ferguson talks about one of the stories we photographed on assignment in Haiti late in 2013.
I have just returned from a week in the Artibonite region of Haiti where I have been working with Oxfam America to document the rice industry, from the farmers in the fields, through to the mills and markets and even big companies who are buying up large quantities of rice. We spoke with people about all aspects of Haitian rice growing, as well as the USA rice imports and the effect that this has on the local marketplace. I travelled with Kevin Ferguson who will tell the stories of the people we met on this journey, incorporating my photography and video. Keep an eye on this blog for links through to upcoming Oxfam America blog posts, articles and documentary work over the coming weeks.© AnnaFawcus/Oxfam America Rice Farming in Artibonite, Haiti 2013
