Having made his name with a straightforward, snapshot style that rocked the art world when he first emerged on the scene and won him the Turner Prize in 2000, Wolfgang Tillmans was perhaps an obvious choice to document the lives of Haitians one year on from the catastrophic earthquake that devastated the region.
The series of photographs produced in collaboration with Christian Aid portray the ongoing struggle and everyday activities of the survivors, fighting with the enormous devastation, poverty and recently, a cholera epidemic.
Describing one of the photographs, Tillmans said: 'People are trying to get where work is, where shelter is, they are trying to get somewhere else to make ends meet.'
