Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. The massive January 2010 earthquake pushed an already tenuous situation even closer to the brink. My images are the result of two post-quake visits to the ravaged country on assignment for Architectural Record. The purpose of the trips was to document the reconstruction efforts by a number of on-the-ground organizations doing difficult and necessary work. This compilation of photographs steps outside of that focus and tells a broader story of the people and places we encountered while traveling through this extraordinary country.
