Armed with digital cameras, eight students from Jacmel aged 12 to 18 have been capturing images of life in the Abri Pwovizwa tent city, the work of local artisans, and other sights around the town as it recovers from the earthquake.

Their work - presented here - was made possible due the efforts of Zanmi Lakay, which for more than 13 years has been teaching photographic skills to Haitian children, and the Art Creation Foundation for Children, which operates an arts program for children in Jacmel.

The images and captions below are by Josué Jean, Fedno Lubin and Douglas Jean © 2010/ZanmiLakay/ACFFC. We'll publish more of the students's work in the days and weeks ahead.
