11 days after Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast of the United States, I travelled as a photojournalist with an impromptu relief mission from an African American church in Maryland to the region. It was a trip with little planning and less resources. It left me dazed and more then a little horrified at what I saw happening in my country. I never liked the initial edit of pictures that I made at the time, and because of that I didn't look at my original files until recently. I'm taking the opportunity of my joining the site to revisit the entire project.
