Some of the contributors talked about the book, Eyes of the Storm: Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Photographic Story, published by Taylor Trade Publishing. The book, a photographic retrospective of the worst natural disaster to hit the nation, was produced by The Dallas Morning News. Nineteen staff photographers contributed over 250 images to the book. Some of these photojournalists participated in the panel discussion of their work and, during this illustrated program, used examples of images from the book to describe the difficulty of working in a disaster area. They also talked about the people they met and photographed while on assignment, and how this experience compared to other major events they have photographed. They also responded to audience members' questions.
On April 17, 2006, the staff of The Dallas Morning News was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for “Breaking News Photography” for photographs included in this book. close
