The following set of photos were taken near the Goose Bayou bridge which separates the communities of Jean Lafitte and Lafitte in lower Jefferson Parish Louisiana. The team was given exclusive access, including a boat, to enter these closed areas by the US Army National Guard, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Jefferson Parish Drainage Department. These images were shot the Friday after Hurricane Isaac slammed into the Gulf Coast. We witnessed a levee breach and the installation of the worlds largest mobile water pump to drain three feet of tidal surge from the surrounding neighborhoods.
