A recent article from Oxfam America, called 'In a battle against the bugs, Haitian farmers win, thanks to better coordination' by Kevin Ferguson talks about one of the stories we photographed on assignment in Haiti late in 2013.
The latest Oxfam America Magazine is out, and features many photos from my recent assignments in Ghana and Haiti, including the cover shot, which is one of the photographs I took when we were documenting the rice farming in Artibonite, Haiti.

The Oxfam America Photo of the Week is one of the photos that I took recently in Haiti. It is accompanied with a blog post by Coco McCabe: In Haiti, a valley of hope. Today, more than 80 percent of the rice Haitians eat is imported. But through the efforts of 5,000 farmers in the lower valley, that could begin to change.
I recently spent a couple of weeks in November 2012 working on two photographic assignments with Oxfam America in Haiti. The first assignment was with Elizabeth Stevens in Artibonite, documenting rice farmers and many water based programs implemented by Oxfam America to enable the 'flow of water' and thus the success of farmers in the region. Here are a few photos of the rice harvest:
