Haiti: January 12 – by Ron HavivWritten by Ciara Leeming
“I don’t think there is any one photograph that can encompass the loss that people suffered. I think there comes a time when you need to have a group of images or a combination of words, of audio, video and stills to hit you on all senses for you to really appreciate what happened” – Ron Haviv
It’s more than six weeks since a devastating earthquake hit Haiti and the continuing crisis there has well and truly slipped from the headlines – the reason why VII and video site telegraph21 have published this multimedia piece by photographer Ron Haviv, who arrived on the island 24 hours after the quake.
His photos will be showing at an exhibition and fundraiser on March 4 in New York. VII is also releasing a book on the Haitian disaster. All the proceeds will go to the charity Partners in Health: http://www.standwithhaiti.org/haiti.
