Katrina Photographs from a Master

After photographing the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina Vincent Laforet an adjunct professor in the Graduate Program of Columbia University said, "As a photographer, this was one of the easiest assignments I've ever had to photograph. As a human being, it was the toughest."

Laforet is a staff photographer at The New York Times and he is also a multimedia producer for the Times online. He is the recipient of several awards including a shared Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography (2002). He was named Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographer's Association in 2002 and 2003 and by the New York Press Photographer's Association in 2001.

It will take a few seconds for this multimedia presentation to load but these are not the usual photographs from the local news photographer.
