Michelle Lisa Polissaint

Michelle Lisa Polissaint will exhibit a series of photographs in bus shelters beginning on August 1, 2019 that will run for five weeks. Michelle’s work will be on display at seven bus shelters along Roberta Hunter Park in South Miami Heights. Her photographs document a recent trip to her family's home in Vieuxbourg d'Aquin, Haiti. The placement pays particular attention to commuters traveling to and from the area for work with snapshots of intimate and familiar moments that may be shared collectively among immigrants from the Caribbean diaspora.
