Growing up in Haiti, by Alice Smeets

This photograph was named Unicef’s Photo of the Year for 2008. A friend of mine currently working as a journalist in Haiti posted the link and a very apt description: “Some of these photos of children in Haiti, by 21-year-old Belgian Alice Smeets, are wry. Most are wrenching. All are amazing.” I second that.
