About This Blog
Haiti has long struggled to overcome poverty, violence and political instability, descending deeper into turmoil after the fall of president Jean-Bertrand Aristide in February 2004. Since then, the country has remained in limbo, led by an interim government as violence and political controversy mount.
On Feb. 7, Haitians are expected to vote in the first presidential elections since Aristide's ouster. The elections have been postponed four times in recent months in the wake of political chaos.
Award-winning photojournalist Ron Haviv is on the ground in Port-au-Prince to document the struggle for a stable, democratic Haiti.
Haviv, a co-founder of the independent photo agency VII, has photographed conflict and humanitarian crisis in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Russia and the Balkans. His work has appeared in various publications, including Vanity Fair, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times Magazine, Fortune, Stern and Paris Match. He has also published two collections of his photography, Blood and Honey: A Balkan War Journal and Afghanistan: On the Road to Kabul.
