In New Orleans I met English documentary theatre maker Mimi Poskett who was in the region doing research for a project about the BP oil spill. She was heading off on a roadtrip through Louisiana and Texas to interview people affected by the spill. So I jumped in for the ride.
It was a truly enlightening and inspiring experience to hear people, from all walks of life, share their stories of lives lived in the face of relentless natural and man-made disasters.
Following are photos taken on the roadtrip, including folks we met and interviewed.
