Hurricane Katrina Photographs - New Original Images

My brother is a civil engineer working to repair what remains of the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. When I got back from Burning Man, he tried to get me to go down and shoot the coast. I didn't go, so he shoots pictures when he's working out in the field. From Colorado, it's hard for me to grasp what they're dealing with in Biloxi. His images do an excellent job of portraying just how utterly devestating the storm was, and how the coast is slowly digging out from under the detritus of Hurricane Katrina. Keep up the good work, J.R. The whole country appreciates the work y'all are doing to restore the coast!

Update: Today, I learn that there's a "nice smell" on the coast and that "31 days after the storm, meat turns to liquid."

This slideshow is a 12 Meg self-playing executable named katrina.exe created using Imagematics StillMotion PE Plus. The soundtrack is In The Waiting Line by Zero 7 from the Garden State soundtrack.
