On November 8th, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan wreaked havoc across much of the central Philippines. In total, more than 8,000 people were killed, and more than four million people were forced to leave their homes. I was invited to collaborate with Oxfam to create a series of photographs, which aim to move beyond traditional post-disaster documentation tracing more subtle changes in the landscape over time and exploring how lives were being rebuilt. I made two visits to one of the regions worst hit, first in early January 2014 and then in late September 2014, prior to the first anniversary. Oxfam created this campaign video to run alongside my photographs.
