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. Over the course of the last twelve months, Herbert has been covering the results of that explosion and narrates a slideshow of his images from the spill’s early days and the subsequent struggle to clean up the coast and rebuild the coastal economy.
