One Year Ago

We remember.

On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti and devastated the capital city, Port-au-Prince. An estimated 316,000 people were killed. The Presidential palace, Parliament and many other important and cultural structures were destroyed, along with countless homes and businesses, leaving many homeless.

Photographer Wyatt Gallery returned to Haiti to capture the human spirit he found among those living in the tents that were set up following the quake. An exhibition of his work is currently on at the Umbrage Gallery in Brooklyn, and a book of the photographs is on sale with proceeds going towards three organizations working to help the country get back on its feet.

Read more about the exhibition here, and find out why Sean Penn is one of the people supporting it.

Tent Life: Haiti runs until 31 March, 2011  at the Umbrage Gallery, 111 Front Street Suite 208 DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY.

  1. I precisely desired to say thanks again. I’m not certain the things I could possibly have accomplished in the absence of the advice contributed by you about my area. Certainly was a alarming case for me, but being able to see a expert approach you dealt with it forced me to cry for contentment. Extremely grateful for the advice and believe you are aware of a powerful job that you’re accomplishing educating many others all through a blog. I’m certain you’ve never come across all of us.
