Documenting the destruction
Photographer David Burnett recently returned to New Orleans' Ninth Ward months after his first visit for National Geographic. Photo by Steve Majors.
"So many things change... but in the photograph, it will live forever. That image is frozen in time."
I met David Burnett while researching a story for Nightly News on Burnett's haunting photos of the post-Katrina landscape along the Gulf Coast. I found the motivation behind each picture just as important as the photo itself. Burnett told me he had mixed emotions about seeing part of the ward finally cleared of debris. He hopes his photographs will serve as a reminder to everyone of the scope of the devastation.
