'I wanted to make a gift of photographs to the Haitian community - its congregation of souls, old and new, for those who had experienced great sadness and great joy in being part of what I call my home, America.' (Bruce Weber, Standing Tall).

Published to coincide with the exhibition Bruce Weber: Haiti/Little Haiti at the Museum of Contempory Art, North Miami, this is Weber's most overtly political book. His photographs of the Haitian community in Miami formed a protest against the indefinite detention of Haitian migrants arriving in the United States. He photographed the inhabitants of Little Haiti, young and old, with the same generosity and understanding as he gives all his subjects. These are real people, who share the American dream.
