Haiti - Disaster in Focus

Carlos Barria was one of the first photographers to witness the earthquake devastation in Haiti.

As a Reuters photographer, his images have been printed in newspapers all around the world.

He says when he leaves Haiti, he will not let the story of these people slip from the world's attention, and wants to continue to return to monitor the reconstruction efforts.

Sometimes he admits he's been so traumatised he has had to put his camera down, remove himself from the scene, and sit in a corner and cry.

Talking during an aftershock, Carlos spoke to Ritula Shah about the experience of trying to do his work in Haiti and particularly the difficulty of photographing suffering children.
