The Typhoon Haiyan destroyed village of Maraboth.

 Photojournalist David Guttenfelder was on assignment in North Korea when he first learned about the catastrophic damage that Super Typhoon Haiyan had inflicted on the Philippines. Another major theme that’s arisen in Guttenfelder’s photographs is the resiliency and general good cheer of the Filipino people in the face of the disaster.

“It’s almost confusing because people are so good-natured here,” Guttenfelder said. “People laugh and are happy, even though their lives are just destroyed. They’ve built basketball hoops in rubble and play pickup games, and people watch and cheer.

“Filipino people have an incredible spirit and an incredible way of moving on. If it were any other place in the world, it would be so different.”
