In the Wake of Katrina
by Larry Towell
Larry Towell's photographs, taken in the days following Hurricane Katrina, make no attempt to be a comprehensive account of events or to offer analysis. Towell's haunting and poetic landscapes, many of them panoramas, depict the devastation and the lives of some of the victims. This is an intimate documentation of the hurricane's impact.
