Villager photos by Tequila Minsky

Photog has documented Haitian apocalypse from Day 1
Photographer Tequila Minsky has been in Haiti since the earthquake hit Jan. 12, having arrived there on a visit just hours before the disaster struck. This page,
clockwise from top: Nine minutes after the quake hit, people running in panic; a girl wailed in the chaos 20 minutes after the earthquake; right after the quake, men tried to free someone under a collapsed building. Opposite page, top to bottom: Under Haiti TV’s satellite dishes on Jan. 20, one of the many tent cities that have sprung up; fleeing Port-au-Prince on Jan. 21, people boarded a boat to Jérémie, a southern city — some waited more than four days for a boat ride, cheaper than the bus, but dangerous.
