While we sleep tonight :: Haiti anniversary


Remember Haiti.

Today is the second anniversary of the devastating Haiti earthquake that left over 200000 people dead and millions displaced and homeless.

Singer songwriter Paul Bell, coincidentally also Sheffield-based, has released a single, ‘While we sleep tonight’, available today on iTunes, which is raising money for Tearfund’s work.

The video for the single features images from the Tearfund ‘Haiti: Beyond the Rubble’ exhibition, featuring my photographs.

Paul and I will be on BBC Radio Sheffield at around 11.20 today.

Tearfund have a press release about Haiti here.

There’s obviously a lot about Haiti on the web at the moment. Here’s the Guardian pictures and story, but there’s a lot more out there. My Guardian gallery of pictures from the exhibition is here.
