USA. Louisiana. New Orleans. St Bernard Parish. Chalmette area. Aftermath of hurricane Katrina. A fishing boat lies in a street near empty houses. The houses were flooded and the ground is covered by oil spillt over from the Murphy Oil Refinery plant. A family selects its unflooded belongings, like cardboard boxes and Winnie the pooh, dressed as Santa Claus - the father Christmas. A child plays in the road and jumps over dirty messy black oil. Oil disaster. Contaminated land. Industrial pollution and toxic waste.  © 2005 Didier Ruef
