Haiti 2010.

The 2010 Haiti earthquake was catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake, with an epicentre near the town of Leogane approximately 25 km (16 miles) west of Port-au-Prince Haiti's capital. The earthquake occurred at 4:53pm local time on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake, the Haitian government reported that an estimated 230,000 people had died, 300,000 had been injured and 1,000,000 made homeless.

I took those pictures from 23rd of January to 4th of February, when the situation in Port-au-Prince was already "calming down". People were organizing their lives among ruins; hospitals, despite being filled up, were becoming a new house for patients, where they were taking care off. In the last days of my stay I could observe, how the situation was getting worse - mainly in hospitals, that were running of the drugs. Number of the surgeries were cut down from 12-14 to 1-2 a day.

Haitians impressed me very much, mostly in that, how they stayed full of dignity, strength and optimism, despite the size of their tragedy.
