Biloxi, Two Years After Katrina

Artist’s Website or Social Media:
Both of my submissions stem from my time spent in Mississippi following the destruction Hurricane Katrina left throughout the region in 2005. Widespread flooding as a result of the levee breaks received widespread media coverage, but areas in MS were significantly more affected. Photo taken in Biloxi, MS, a year and a half following the storm. Thirty miles west of Waveland, Biloxi was similarly impacted by the hurricane and was an area I operated in following the storm. Eighteen months later, much remained the same, with houses still demolished or leaning on stilts, and businesses struggling to reopen. This image shows the sign of the McDonalds, just steps away from the Gulf of Mexico, that like so many other businesses had yet to reopen.
