The Monster Under The Water

The following links will take you to an excellent multimedia presentation, article and photos related to recent BP Gulf oil spill and tragic consequences.

As a native of Louisiana, it made me cry to watch the unfolding disaster and the damage, both the known and visible damage and as the project describes: The Monster Under The Water and the video report.  The photography is by Melanie Buford, check out her website for great stories.

There is a related article on the website ProPublica, written by Kim Barker. It is a well written and balanced account of the tragedy

This is truly documentary photography, photojournalism and journalism at its best.
