I am currently in Haiti where I am on assignment. My initial schedule for coming here has been altered due to Cyclone Sandy’s appearance in Haiti. This made my trip around the island impossible and life incredibly difficult for myself, let alone the 500,000 Haitans still living in camps since the 2010 earthquake.
With plans cancelled we turned to looking at a range of community based initiatives SOS Childrens Village runs through its community centres. During the height of the floods that hit Haiti’s capital Port Au Prince I visited areas where a few of these community centres are situated. We visited families that have been affected by flooding, below are a few photos from the last few days.
I hope to post more soon.
After a welcomed absence from the digital world for a month, I am returning to Australia tomorrow and will be hitting the ground running quite literally, driving from the airport to Canberra to present at the Aid Communicators Conference on the ethics of photography on assignment for development partners.
Below is one of my photos from an assignment in Bangladesh for AusAID featured on the cover of their current edition of Focus magazine.
