Photographer's Note

A tap tap on Gonaïves beach. They are painted buses or pick-up trucks that serve as share taxis in Haiti. They may also be referred to as camionette. Literally meaning "quick quick", these vehicles for hire are privately owned and ornately decorated. They follow fixed routes, won't leave until filled with passengers, and their passengers can disembark at any point in the journey. Often painted with religious names or slogans, the tap tap is known for its lavish decoration, and many feature wild colors, portraits of famous people, and intricate, hand-cut wooden window covers.
