Reuters photographer Carlos Barria photographed some of the most devastating scenes of Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath in New Orleans.
Almost a decade down the lane, he returned to the city to see how far the place and its people have come after the disaster which claimed more than 1,500 lives.
Barria went on to find the locations he had documented in 2005 and compared his old photos with new ones, of the same places, to show how New Orleans has remained defiant in the face of adversity.
