#802, Launched TUESDAY September 21, 2021: 'DANCING IN THE RUBBLE: 'If There is Life, There is Hope' by ZUMA all time photography Pulitzer Prize Winner: Photojournalist Carol Guzy. Guzy received her fourth Pulitzer for her searing coverage of the Haitian 2010 earthquake. August 14, 2021, local time 9:30.09, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck the Tiburon Peninsula in the Caribbean nation of Haiti. It had a 10-km-deep hypocenter near Petit-Trou-de-Nippes, approximately 90 miles west of the capital, Port-au-Prince. ZUMA sent Guzy to quake's epicenter: Village of Maniche, population of 22K commune in the Les Cayes Arrondissement, in the Sud department of Haiti. Quake had killed at least a confirmed 2,248 and injuring 13K+, leaving the Caribbean Island nation in the grip of yet another humanitarian crisis. On good days, life is desperate. Tragedy befalls the country repeatedly. Political anarchy, gang violence, natural disasters and endless floods. 2010 epic quake killed over 300K. Decade later the island country still hadn't recovered when the earth trembled again and life for so many was again eternally altered. Yet for most Haitians it's not about dying in the quake but rather living in the rubble of shattered lives and altered destinies where their legendary resilience manifests. They mourn, pray then move on with the task of living. The town of Maniche is a teeth-rattling bumpy drive from Les Cayes where approximately 90% of buildings were destroyed or damaged. Yet hope endures in the wounded landscape. Welcome to: 'DANCING IN THE RUBBLE' a Five Part Story: Starts with Wake, Funeral then goes HOME, serving with a little. Helping Hands, yet Wounded, Not Broken and closing with hope: Eternal Faith! Visualist masterpiece by the one and the only ZUMA Press's CAROL GUZY!

The town of Maniche is a teeth-rattling bumpy drive from Les Cayes where approximately 90% of buildings were destroyed or damaged. Yet hope endures in the wounded landscape. Brass bands lead funeral processions past broken buildings during a wake for Marie Herese Atimeus, vibrant villagers danced till dawn on the ruins of the home where she died. They sang, drank, partied. Dominoes games lasted throughout the night under a full moon.

Carol Guzy

CAROL GUZY is an American documentary photojournalist. As a young girl, ZUMA Press photographer, Carol Guzy always wanted to be an artist. But as she was coming of age in a working-class family in Bethlehem, Pa., such an ambition seemed impossible. ''Everyone I knew said, 'Oh, if you're an artist, you'll starve,''' she recalls. ''You have to do something really practical.''' So Guzy chose to go to nursing school. Halfway through she realized she would not, could not, be a nurse. ''I was scared to death I was going to kill someone by making some stupid mistake,'' she laughs. So while she was trying to figure out what to do with her life, a friend gave her a camera and she took a photography course. Guzy fascination with photography led to an internship and then a job at the Miami Herald. In 1988 she moved to The Washington Post. Carol photographs have won four Pulitzer Prizes and three Photographer of the Year awards in the National Press Photographers' annual contest. ''I don't believe the Pulitzers belong to us, I think we just accept them for the people who are in our stories,'' said Guzy. ''They're the courageous ones.'' From her shots of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti to Albanian refugees fleeing violence in Kosovo, Guzy captures moments of disaster and human suffering:802
