A photo essay from Haiti by Michael Larremore ’08

The eyes of the world were on Haiti after the devastating earthquake on Jan. 12. A group of doctors I have worked with internationally does humanitarian work around the globe. They traveled to Haiti in February, and I went to document their work. The images from the country that appeared in the media showed great carnage and misery. But I went on this mission to shed light on the humanitarian effort. Among patients and doctors alike, I found courage in the face of disaster.
