Spanish for soul, Alma is a collection of colour and black and white photographs by part-time Times Colonist photographer Sean White, who spent two weeks last January documenting the aftermath of Hurricane Mitch in Honduras. The display features 22 fine-art prints depicting the real lives and human spirit of the Honduran people with powerful captions accompanying each image.
The goal is less about evoking sympathetic feelings of the survivors of Hurricane Mitch but more focussed on creating an atmosphere where the public can relate to the people in the images on a personal human level.
-Sean White, 1999
