CLIENT WORK: Katrina Stories
In 2005 and 2006 I traveled to the gulf coast states on assignment for ColorsNW Magazine covering the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The resulting stories took a uniquely personal look at how people from various communities were coping with putting their lives back together after the storm. Katrina illustrated just how vulnerable the poor are in our society. The editorial staff at ColorsNW wanted to put a human face on the national conversation about the role of poverty and social inequity and the impact of Katrina.
The galleries in this section present five stories of people struggling to make sense of their lives and rebuild their communities in the wake of the storm.
