Photographer and Turner Prize winner Wolfgang Tillmans has travelled to Haiti with the charity Christian Aid, to document reconstruction work after the country's devastating earthquake a year ago. He found slow rebuilding efforts everywhere.
The Adolfe family lost their home in Port-au-Prince in the earthquake and lived in a tent for three months before deciding to return to the family home in Les Cayes.
People usually moved to Port-au-Prince for work or school, and there are not the same opportunities back home for people like daughter Tamara Adolfe, 25, whose school in the capital collapsed in the quake.

Some people have chosen to leave their families behind and live where there's work, while sending their wages home to the capital to pay for their children's schooling.
In Port-au-Prince, people seem constantly on the move, says Tillmans: "People are trying to get to where the work is, where shelter is, they are trying to get somewhere else to make ends meet."
The UN is an ubiquitous presence in Haiti, before and after the earthquake. Some Haitians resent the troops' perceived lack of involvement in the rebuilding, and the mission, called Minustah, is sometimes referred to as Touristah.
These clothes donated by the West were first picked through in the Dominican Republic before making their way to Haiti, in Anse-a-Pitres. What is not used, like the duvet, will be sold on.
In Thiotte, efforts are focused on building homes in the countryside for people who fled the earthquake zone.
