On January 12, shortly before 5 p.m., a magnitude 7 earthquake struck about 10 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Although the earthquake lasted 35 seconds, the destruction continues to devastate Haitians over a month later. The death toll stands at over 200,000 people. UN food deliveries did not reach parts of the country's capital for three weeks after the quake.

Photographer Willie Davis offers a glimpse of life in Haiti following the earthquake. His photographs capture the devastation caused by the disaster, the tent cities where survivors are camped out in Port-au-Prince, and the resilience of the people affected.
