New Mexico photographer David Zimmerman sees the devastation of the Gulf spill in the faces of people who live in Louisiana, as highlighted by this montage of recent photos.
Zimmerman, who arrived in the Gulf about a week after the April accident, decided to catalog the despair in a Gulf photo project, as he describes on his Web site:
“For all the devastation I saw off-shore, the worst of what I saw was on-shore; in the faces and voices of the people who call this place home. The courage that wills the people of the Gulf to go on is being tested once again. Tested by a disaster that will continue to replay. Tested by a corporate giant that has its own agenda. Tested by a government unwilling to or unable to take the lead. Generations have made these waters home, and these waters and the people of the region have become the voices that go unheard.”
