Chris Granger has joined his photography colleagues Sophia Germer, Max Becherer, Scott Threlkeld and David Grunfeld in covering these historic moments. It is their hope that their photos fully capture the spirit and powerful emotion of this time.
The last few weeks have been filled with some of the most intense combinations of news events I’ve ever experienced in the 25 years I’ve worked as a photojournalist in New Orleans.
In the midst of a pandemic, the city filled with protesters, marching through the streets, vocalizing their anger with racial inequities. All this took place as the city braced for a tropical storm, taking aim directly at New Orleans. With so many stressors, emotions have run high.
For the Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, it was all hands on deck, as our news team has fanned out across the city.
