Book description 
  
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. Towell’s are not loud news pictures, but haunting and poetic landscapes – many of them panoramas – depicting the devastation. An intimate, documentary record of the hurricane’s impact and a tribute to human endurance. For his afterword, Ace Atkins revisits the scenes of Towell's photographs nine months on, reflecting on how the communities of the coast have been able to rebuild their lives.  
  
About the Author 
  
In intimate photoessays that combine his interests in history and poetry, Towell's series on El Salvador and the Mennonites are landmarks of photojournalism. Exhibited worldwide, he has been honoured with the world's most prestigious photography prizes, including the Eugene Smith, Oskar Barnak, Roloff Beny, Alfred Eisenstadt, Hasselblad and Cartier-Bresson awards. He is a member of Magnum Photos.
