Haiti.

I just hope photographers do the right thing here and don't turn it into some kind of career enhancing money making circus. Photographers and agencies have already had some mileage out of this poor fucked up country. OK I understand the importance of letting the world know etc etc but lets not turn it into the photojournalist equivalent of a Selfridges sale. Maybe it would do more good to take your plane fare/fixer money and send it HERE. Just a thought.
The exodus will no doubt start HERE.

Hell of a point! And one not likely to be seen made elsewhere...

Stan, 50'000 at least dead, I've aready seen the images on TV this is no time to be making Art, I know you know what I mean. I just want to fucking scream scream. The world has managed to muster $200 million. My beloved football club in this tiny city today was talking about writing off a debt of £700 million. I feel fucking dirty and it's not my fault.
