Michaux Flelan, at her coffee stand, Cange, Haiti. May, 2014.
It is remarkable, humbling and something strange how events swirl and conspire to give us gifts, just for a moment. Here’s my friend Mdm. Michaux, whose early-morning coffee is becoming something of an obsession for me. This one photograph came out of a series of about ten shots, and the moment she looked this particular way while preparing coffees for other customers, I thought, ah Vermeer!
I saw the photograph in black and white, but below is the color version… you see what I mean.
