I managed to snag a few moments (over email) with Jason Cone, executive producer of the Starved for Attention films and MSF’s Communications Director based out of New York, and Ron Haviv, one of VII’s founding members. I wanted to ask the two about how NGOs and photographers work together, how a campaign such as this is produced, and how NGOs and journalists work to get stories out to a wide audience within such a fractured media environment.

Haiti has always been a land of beauty and pain, of light and darkness. When a catastrophic earthquake hit the island on Tuesday, January 12th, the world was shaken by the magnitude of the destruction and human suffering. In this story for VII The Magazine, photographers James Nachtwey, Ron Haviv, Lynsey Addario and Benjamin Lowy provide a heart-wrenching look at this disaster and its aftermath.

VII founding member, Ron Haviv, was one of the earliest photographers to land in Haiti after the earthquake on January 12th of this year. This video produced with telegraph21 is an insighful look at what he experienced, the destruction, loss of life and the despair of the people of Haiti.

It’s more than six weeks since a devastating earthquake hit Haiti and the continuing crisis there has well and truly slipped from the headlines – the reason why VII and video site telegraph21 have published this multimedia piece by photographer Ron Haviv, who arrived on the island 24 hours after the quake.

Each time is a different experience. I usually am here due to some major force; perhaps an election, a coup, an invasion, a natural disaster. So they are all different. But here in Port-au-Prince, the feeling in the first few days was something I had never experienced before, an overwhelming power of silence and submission.

This month we have a story from Ron Haviv about an encounter with the Serbian paramilitary leader Arkan (at right) while he was covering the Bosnian War during the 1990s. With a little smoke and mirrors, Ron saved his revealing images from confiscation and helped share the horrors of ethnic cleansing he saw with the world. Much of the work is collected in his book, Blood and Honey.
