Photo Magazine to Aid Haiti Quake Victims

Several world-class photographers, including Mary Ellen Mark, are donating the use of their works to create a special edition of a magazine that you can buy as a fundraising effort to provide medical and disaster relief to Haiti. All proceeds will be donated to the International Red Cross.

The title “Haiti: Onè Respe” comes from a traditional Haitian greeting meaning “honor and respect.”
The photography magazine is made possible through the Magcloud print-on-demand service to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti.

The project is spearheaded by San Francisco photojournalist Lane Hartwell, one of our former students:

“The news of the disaster in Haiti deeply touched me, both as a person and as a photojournalist. I wondered what I could do to help, and spoke with my friend and colleague Peter Pereira, who had the privilege of shooting in Haiti in November 2009. The idea began with his essay, but others quickly came forward with generous contributions and before we knew it we had a magazine. We started on the morning of the 13th and had it available before midnight on the 14th."
This 40-page special issue is available at
