Haiti’s rubble-rouser: The 4-year fight for earthquake justice | Toronto Star

Daniel Morel snapped photos from the operating room table until anesthesia knocked him out so surgeons could dig two tumours out of his brain.

The Haitian-American is one of those photographers: hard-core. He has covered coups, gang wars, lynchings, deadly hurricanes.

“I always take a last shot. It might be my last shot,” says Morel, 62. “No last word, a last shot. That’s how I want to go.”

The shot that might have been his last on Jan. 12, 2010, captured his friend’s gleeful face, as the earth below them bounced like a trampoline. via | Toronto Star
