Sunrise 9th Ward New Orleans, 40 Days and 40 Nights

Most of photographer Donn Young’s lifetime’s work was destroyed due to flood waters from Hurricane Katrina inundating his New Orleans studio in 2005. Undaunted by the loss, Young documented the devastation wrought by the storm, including this scene he titled Sunrise, 9th Ward, New Orleans, part of his “40 Days and 40 Nights” series.
