In the Wake of Katrina by Larry Towell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Between September 3 - 11, 2005, photographer Larry Towell, accompanied by Southern novelist Ace Atkins, traveled along the coast of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, documenting the dramatic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Towells are not loud news pictures, but haunting and poetic landscapes many of them panoramas depicting the devastation. This is an intimate, documentary record of the hurricane's impact and a tribute to human endurance.
