One Year On, Photographer Captures Lingering Impacts of the Gulf Oil Spill

Associated Press photographer Gerald Herbert, a New Orleans native, has been covering the Gulf oil spill ever since BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and sank exactly one year ago.

Gerald Herbert’s work captured the environmental and personal toll of the oil spill along the Gulf Coast.
