"In the late spring of 2010, photographer Casey MacKenzie Johnson packed her bags and left for Haiti to assist in the rebuilding that followed the destructive earthquake of earlier that year. In spite of tragic circumstances, Casey caught glimpses of something other than heartache: hope. 'There is a definite duality to the aftermath of the quake. Families were left homeless, many with dead spouses, fathers, mothers, brothers, or sisters- and for some, all they have is gratitude that they are still alive. My photography shows both sides: the destruction and the triumph that ensues when the only way to go is up.'" From the 'apre' press release by Clay Goetz
All proceeds went to benefit the J/P Haitian Relief Organization, founded by actor and humanitarian Sean Penn, to get families out of the tent city and into homes. Opening reception photos by Emily Agenjo.
