Just over 10-years ago, Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the Gulf of Mexico, leveling much of New Orleans and severely damaging surrounding areas. Too many, the wicked storm needs no introduction, nor will it’s memory be soon forgotten. Eight of the brave photojournalists that risked their physical and mental health to cover the tragedy, recently sat down with Newseek to recount their experiences documenting Katrina, giving the world a glimpse into the life of a photojournalist.
As you could imagine, the tales are gripping, gritty at times and tear jearking during others, as they detail their journeys–sharing some of their most memorable shots along the way. Be warned, there are graphic photographs shown during the clip, but you can take a look at the mini-documentary and pulitzer prize winning photography from the likes of Smiley N. Pool, Eliot Kamenitz, Susan Walsh, Roberto E. Rosales, Thomas Patterson, Radhika Chalasani, Sakamaki, and Timothy Fadek
