Photographer's Note

Sans Souci Palace in Milot, or what's left of it. It was built by King Christophe, at the expense of the sweat and toil of many workers, just a couple of years after Haiti had liberated itself from slavery and colonisation. Haiti was the second country to liberate itself from colonisation, after the US, and the first succesfull slave rebellion, but it has not had much luck with its leaders as an independent country. Roi Christophe was just one of the first of many dictators.
