Port-au-Prince, Haiti lies a mere 700 miles off the coast of Florida. Yet it remains a world away as time seems to spin in different direction than the rest of the Western Hemisphere. I first traveled to Haiti in my twenties for the Miami Herald to document the fall of the Duvalier government. Returning a dozen times over the next five years, I always felt a special affinity for the Haitian people who never seem to catch a break from the universe. Last fall I was given a chance to revisit my roots as a photojournalist when returned to Haiti to capture images of life in Port-au-Prince using the Sony A7R. I hope these photographs of Haiti capture the enduring spirit of the Haitian people, the beauty that exists in the chaos and my wishes for a better tomorrow.
