Haiti: W. Eugene Smith, Christopher Anderson

The image of W. Eugene Smith in a psychiatric institute in Haiti resembles the fear of the men catched up while traveling in a boat to the American coast, as they started sinking. With this image, Christopher Anderson won a prize and developed the so called "experiential documentary", as he was taking part in the expedition and was about to die with everyone else, until they were rescued. He used no flash, only the light of the moon. Neat!
