Coming Back to Life

A year after the South Asian tsunami killed nearly 200,000 people and left more than a million homeless, Time magazine photographer John Stanmeyer returned to the Indonesian region of Aceh to trace what has happened in the last 12 months. His photos of the streets, canals and graveyards of Aceh vividly show how some people managed to move forward since the devastation. Simon Elegant's accompanying story movingly describes how chartibable groups are helping Aceh's surviving residents rebuild their lives. Stanmeyer's pictures and Elegant's words give us a story of hope after last year's despair.
