David Burnett – Aftermath

I remember the first time I saw David Burnett’s photographs showing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans back in 2006. The accompanied an article in National Geographic and it was the first time that I realised that documentary photography wasn’t just about being amidst the action with a Leica and Tri-x 1600. Documentary photographs could be slow, contemplative, beautiful even.

Soon after I bought a 1950s Speed Graphic from ebay. When each exposure costs £7, you tend not to waste too many.
