Florise, from the series Tomorrow of Yesterday, Haiti, 2017 © Stefanie Moshammer (detail)

In November 2016 and March 2017 Stefanie Moshammer visited the Haitian island Île-à-Vache. What looks like the Caribbean dream straight from a stock photograph, with waving palms and white beaches, is also a place of unfulfilled promises. Besides the beautiful surroundings of the deep blue ocean, bright green nature and colourful streets, cities and sea shores are also coloured by litter and waste, from plastic bottles and bags to polystyrene wrappings. In her series Tomorrow of Yesterday, Stefanie Moshammer researches notions of paradise, between Western ideals, yesterday’s promises, and the everyday lives of the people who live there.
