A day in the life of Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana

In June 2010, as OSU scientists were monitoring whales and toxins (see Down to the Gulf) and as clean-up crews frantically worked to minimize damage from the Deepwater Horizon well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico, Justin Bailie, a photographer from Seaside, Oregon, was documenting the impact on Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. His slideshow demonstrates residents’ strong ties to the sea and their distress over the spill. Bailie’s photographs have appeared in National Geographic Adventure, Outside, Forbes Mountaintime, Sierra, Oregon Tourism and other publications.
