Slideshow of Haiti devastation

Sam Lucero, editor of The Compass in Green Bay, Wis., who is one of the Catholic press’s most accomplished visual journalists, recently pulled together two slideshows showing the devastation in Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake. He’s now put them on the newspaper’s YouTube channel.

The presentation embedded above is particularly striking, combining photos from the scene that we’ve distributed to our client publications with the interview we conducted within 24 hours of the quake with Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York, chairman of Catholic Relief Services.

Here is a link to the other slideshow by The Compass on YouTube. Or, you can watch the original slideshows, which include captions, here and here.

No matter how you watch them, they are stark reminders of the terrible devastation in Haiti and the major role Catholic Relief Services is playing there.
