(CNN) - World-renowned photographer Peter Turnley traveled to Haiti after the earthquake to document the lives of people burying their dead and trying to rebuild.
In an exclusive interview with "Amanpour," Turnley - whose photographs have appeared on the cover of "Newsweek" more than 40 times - talks about the extraordinary moments and emotions he experienced.
He was in the morgue with a man searching for the body of his son, and in the hospital to see a mother's first minutes with her newborn.
Fluent in French, Turnley was able to connect personally with the people he photographed.
"What I was seeing was a country and a people between life and death," Turnley said. "They weren't having any sense that this was going to be easy... I hope the world and the journalistic community will continue to come back to this story for a long time to come."
Turnley has covered earthquakes and conflicts around the world, as well as the fall of the Berlin Wall and the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
