In the Wake of Katrina
Between September 3 and 11, 2005, Ace Atkins teamed with photographer Larry Towell and traveled along the coast of Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi, documenting the dramatic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
In the Wake of Katrina showcases the results of that trip—Towell's haunting and poetic landscapes. Panoramas and photographs depict the lives of ordinary people amidst the devastation. It is an intimate, documentary record of the hurricane's impact and a tribute to human endurance. For his afterword, 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.
