CHRISLOM ADONNIA with 11 month old son LORBENSKY HANDEL ADONNIA, nicknamed Ton Ton cope with aftermath of the earthquake. It takes a village as neighbors help each other heal while awaiting international aid. The family later builds a foundation in the driving rain after a week of huddling together during nights outside across town. Pure joy erupted among the residents as precious tents were placed on the empty space that once housed their memories, amid clotheslines of recently washed laundry and the wreckage of their former lives. Indeed, there is no place like home.

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:803
