Images Of Haiti Days After The Earthquake, And Now

NPR photographer David Gilkey revisits a few key locations in Haiti one year after a massive earthquake devastated the capital, Port-au-Prince, and left more than 200,000 people dead. Conditions in some locations have improved in the past year; others changed very little.
