Haitian National Soccer

A few weeks ago I took a trip down to the San Antonio area to photograph the Haitian national soccer team. After the earthquake in January the team was invited to train in Texas by way of different charities. The soccer federation in Port-au-Prince was destroyed by the earthquake and many of the people working within the federation were killed. While the team sleeps in cabins and is feed three meals a day, their families remain in Haiti.
