I'm not sure what it is that might drive a Scandinavian photographer to leave his nothern abode in search of tragedy in a far away land but in the case of Pieter Ten Hoopen I'm certainly glad that he did. His aftermath images of the town of Ballakot, Pakistan that was tragically torn apart by a violent earthquake in 2006 are both stunning and shocking at the same time. He was awrded first prize in Daily Life Stories of the 2008 World Press Photo Awards and has won Press Photographer of the Year twice in Sweden. Check some samples of his image in the gallery below and for more images from the earthquake visit Moment Archive
