sephlawless @guardian Published its first story using my images. I was hired by the Guardian to capture the shots for David Uberti's most recent story. The Guardian will release my photo essay story closer to the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. There's really no better group of people to work for then the Guardian. Very appreciative to be working for them as a photojournalist once again. Great things to come...Enjoy!

After losing everything Darrick was sent to Texas like many others to pick up the pieces of his life. He would move back to New Orleans 7 years later and would explain to me the ongoing struggle to readapt to the ever changing landscape of his hometown.

sephlawless Abandoned Mall (2015)

If I had a dime for every time someone commented my pictures saying 'If these walls could talk' or 'Looks like the mall from the Last of Us' ...I'd be a millionaire and I'd still be really annoyed.

sephlawless I would enter this abandoned shopping mall one last time in 2015 with France's National television network 'France 2'. This later would become the very last image ever taken of North Randall Mall before being demolished later that day. 2w

sephlawless Born from the great flood

Yesterday, The Guardian Newspaper sent me to New Orleans for an upcoming story I'm doing for them. They gave me free creative expression over how I wanted to portray New Orleans 10 years after Hurricane Katrina.
One of my projects will be 10 power portraits of people effected by the catastrophe. I came here wanting a 10 year old child born around the time of the flood. Well I found that today in the lower 9th ward. Meet 10 year old twin brothers Donavon and Devon.
