Behind the Bars in Haiti:

In a country of complexity, poverty, and resilience, Haiti’s prisons, rarely photographed or visited by outsiders, are symbolic of how far the country has yet to go. These images were taken at a prison in the north of Haiti. 

Heat visibly radiates out of the cells, where 20 to 30 men are packed into rooms meant to hold 8 at most. They take turns eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom in the dark muggy corners of their cell.
