Photographer Jerry Moran
On Feb. 23, I made a return trip to Ocean Springs, Miss., to see how things looked 10 months after the spill. All images were taken in the area of Latitude 30,21.8599N; Longitude 88,46.123W.
I have photographed this beach on at least five occasions since August 2010. And I’m disappointed to see and report that very little has changed: oil and chemical residue still coat the beach, and erosion has taken a heavy toll on large parts of the shoreline where mangroves and marsh grass once flourished. ...
The beach has simply vanished into the Gulf in many areas as dead pelicans, fish, turtles, and jelly fish continue to litter the beach 10 long months after the spill.
