Haiti: Between death and life

Watch Peter Turnley as well as Angelina Jolie on her work in Haiti on "Amanpour," CNN International, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. In the U.S., the show appears on CNN, Sunday at 2 and 5 p.m ET.

(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.

    Ideally, the governments of the West will continue to support Haiti. Haiti's best bet will be if concerned people continue to provide time, energy, and financial support. It is very difficult, at this time, to find agencies who are interested in non-medical people, like teachers, bereavement counselors, warm bodies to hold children and change dressings. From the news it appears that people who are willing to go to Haiti and do the non-heroic jobs should be encouraged to go. Not so easy. How do we connect with NGs?
