The Gujarat Earthquake was a terrible tragedy.  I photographed the aftermath and the aftershocks.
 
I arrived at the epicenter the day after the first earthquake.  Over a period of a week, I tried to document the damage and the incredible, indefatigueable, spirit of the people of Gujarat.
 
A few days after the primary quake, my hotel collapsed around me in an aftershock.  I woke up to the feeling of liquid beneath me as the floors fell through and the walls collapsed.  Strangely, I survived.
 
Reaching for my cell phone, I called a friend just to connect with someone, somewhere safe.  It was all I could think of doing as I wondered, what next.
 
Those of us who lived, we gathered outside what was left of the hotel, had a cup of coffee and 
considered whether any of this meant anything at all.
