Info

Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
A young boy picks his way through a garbage strewn area of Cite Soleil, the often violent pro-Aristide slum. Life here is run by gangs, and a no-go area for the Haitian police. Many homes have been destroyed in gang violence, and the absence of municipal authorities sees garbage strewn in the area. Haiti, the western hemisphere's poorest country, faces another election.
