After the last day of training, we got a ride out to the local beach to take portraits of the reporters for my ongoing project, which will eventually bring together images of all 133 + Global Press Institute journalists around the world. We also thought it would be nice to relax, after a long week for us and for the students who put in very long days at their college and then would come to the GPI trainings each day after school.
After swimming and playing around on the beach, which always has a way of bringing out the kid in all of us, we began to write in the sand. The reporters wrote these notes for us which I think convey the love and appreciation that they showed us and which we feel for them in return. I can’t wait to see the stories and the photographs that will continue to come from the amazing ladies at the GPI newsdesk in Haiti!
