Photojournalist Ron Haviv on the Aftermath in Haiti

Friday, February 26, 2010

Photojournalist Ron Haviv landed in Haiti less than 24 hours after the January 12 earthquake that devastated the nation. A veteran of covering crises and conflicts around the world, Haviv quickly set to work documenting the destruction and the ensuing grief of Haitians coming to grips with the disaster.

"The scars from this event are going to last several generations,” said Haviv, who has worked extensively in Yugoslavia and Afghanistan. 

On March 4, Haviv's photos will be on exhibit for a fundraiser at VII Photo Agency in Dumbo. As part of the effort, he created a boxed set of 16 posters. The event and sales of the posters will benefit Partners in Health.

Haviv recently collaborated with telegraph21 on a video that brings together photographs, video and audio taken from his January 12 trip.
