The photographic essay by the Dominican Pedro Farias-Nardi deals with the things that are there, simple, palpable and everyday, that differentiate us and inform us about the condition of that other: Haiti. With this he achieves this by following an ice reseller, Mr. Fallace Tati and his nephew Jean, seeking to unravel the fetishism of merchandise. They cross the border early in the morning, towards the Beller ice factory, in Dajabón, Dominican Republic.
At the border, he awaits the opening at eight in the morning, portraying an avalanche of people towards the Dominican Republic through the bridge over the Masacre River that divides both countries, full of history and corpses. This essay is the result of the observation and perception of the border market, which he has been photographing for years. Thus, he makes a photographic account of a simple, basic product; which in the Dominican Republic is taken for granted: drink something cold. Farias-Nardi describes this as a cold metaphor, forgive the redundancy, of the Haitian reality and what it has implied for Dominican border development.
