Most of Port-au-Prince is destroyed but the spirit of its residents is not. This is what award-winning photojournalist Roberto Guerra finds upon traveling to Haiti after the initial media frenzy subsided.

Prior to January’s 7.0-magnitude earthquake, most Haitians were used to struggling to survive.
