In October 2013, I traveled to Haiti to support ongoing medical relief efforts after the 2010 earthquake. The small group and I traveled to a chosen church or village outside Port-au-Prince, set up a mobile unit and pharmacy, and saw as many patients as we could. When the line stalled, I began to photograph, gathering a large archive of images.

In January 2018, NOVA Hope for Haiti discovered these images. NOVA is a collective group of medical and non-medical professionals who operate from a year-round community clinic in the small town of Cavaillon. The organization dispatches a team of volunteer, US-based medical specialists to provide care in mass every six to twelve months. Apart from making images of the patient transformations, I began a personal collection of photographs of the life and people of southwest Haiti.

The following images are from the ongoing series.
