chaotic refuge

June 11, 2010

A mother watches over her daughter on a rundown street in the slums of Cite Soleil, where World Relief delivered a truckload of water for vulnerable families in the aftermath of the earthquake. To me, the photograph – my personal favorite – embodies the striking and complex beauty of Haiti, even amidst disaster, in the daughter and the background colors; the strength of its people to conquer adversity and the proper place they have in caring for their own children in the attentive mother; and the normalcy of life—continuing on only because it must—in the elderly man reading in the background.
