Healing Haiti: Photographs After the Earthquake by Patrick Raycraft

Twelve black & white photographs by photojournalist Patrick Raycraft are on display in the Neil Hammer Gallery at Meekins Library in Williamsburg through April 2020. Raycraft’s images document humanitarian efforts in the aftermath of the devasting January 2010 earthquake in Port au Prince, Haiti. Ten years after the disaster, there is still uncertainty and controversy about the exact death toll. Estimates range from 46,000 to 316,000 people killed. The official death count by the Haitian government is 316,000. It is widely reported that there are an estimated 4,000 amputees as a result of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake.
