For my recent week in Haiti, I was armed by our art director with a camera, and commanded to take usable pictures. I am not a professional photographer, but he assures me these qualify. (In this week's print edition of THE WEEKLY STANDARD, you can see more photographs from shooters who actually know what they're doing.) Here's hoping the additional snaps more clearly illuminate a wild and devastated place. (Warning: Some photos are extremely graphic.) And by all means, read the accompanying story, since I am, arguably, a professional writer.
