Orlando, Fla. – Patrick Farrell, a photojournalist with the Miami Herald and the winner of a Pulitzer Prize in 2009, will give an interactive photo presentation on Haiti at the Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando on Jan. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. Click here for pdf flyer.
The free public event titled “The People and Land of Haiti” will showcase Farrell’s photographic work in Haiti. Farrell won the Pulitzer Prize for the images he captured in Haiti during the 2008 hurricane season that ravaged the country. He returned to Haiti last January following the devastating earthquake that killed an estimated 230,000 people and left 1 million homeless.
The event is being held to mark the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 12 earthquake and to honor the principles and values of Martin Luther King Jr.
The presentation will be held in room 209 of the Andreas Law Center on the Barry Law School campus at 6441 E. Colonial Drive in Orlando.
