An image from Haiti by photojournalist Ron Haviv
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.
