Teenager's Photography from Haiti.

What's the best advice you can give a photographer, writer, journalist, film maker, general creative person? I don't know, but high up there is being passionate about what you're doing, getting involved with the things closet to your heart. Living in it, being part of it. Dispense with the myth of objectivity, stop pretending you're invisible and get involved.

Anyway, we are always rolling out the 'giving a voice to the voiceless' axiom, and what better way to do that than to let people tell their own stories. So kudos to everyone out there doing just that, like Natasha Fillion who has run a workshop in Haiti giving teenagers cameras. This has of course resulted in some of the best photography I have seen coming out of that country in the past year.

Now about that whole rebuilding the country thing....
