Into the Unknown – NPR Photo Coverage from Japan and Haiti

Nprlogo 138x46NPR has posted a photo gallery of images from David Gilkey comparing the devastation from earthquakes in Haiti and Japan. Some of the parallels are eerie as each country begins the recovery process.

There’s an audio interview with Gilkey, as well, where he talks about what it was like shooting in these situations, especially describing the sounds of Haiti and Japan. Haiti was full of screams, Japan was silent.

  1. Thanks for sharing this amazing site.
    The photos are moving in their own right, but especially revealing in juxtaposition with one another.
