Photographs Of Haitians Wearing ‘Funny’ T-Shirts Donated By Americans
By Erwan Xiao, 09 Jul 2013
In the series ‘Pepe’, Haiti-based photographers Paolo Woods and Ben Depp have documented an interesting phenomenon: American T-shirts, that were originally made in Haiti, traveling a whole circle, only to be donated to and worn by Haitians. These second-hand clothes are known as ‘Pepe’.
The shirts often contain slogans of “questionable taste”, and create a strange and incongruous juxtaposition when worn by people in remote provinces of Haiti.
