Finding the Way Home: Two Years After Katrina

Produced by: Brenda Ann Kenneally, Brian Storm, Eric Maierson,

By now, the initial images are familiar: rows of city blocks flooded past the horizon, crowds outside the Superdome begging for help, hundreds stranded on highways looking for somewhere to go. Two years after Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana on August 29, 2005, the story is no longer about leaving. It's about coming home. For many, that process has not been easy. Tens of thousands of houses still remain empty, a majority of them belonging to the poor. In New Orleans alone, most of the 77,000 rental units have not been rebuilt. As staggering as the numbers are, though, they cannot do justice to the emotional turmoil left in the hurricane's wake. Just what does it take for a family to start over? How does one survive not only the loss of a house, but the very real economic hardships of paltry insurance payments and lack of jobs, housing, and so many basic needs. Photojournalist Brenda Ann Kenneally, originally on assignment for The New York Times Magazine, documents the seemingly endless struggles some families face as they set about Finding the Way Home: Two Years After Katrina.

Produced by: Jim Lo Scalzo, Brian Storm,

Evidence of My Existence is a visual synopsis of photojournalist Jim Lo Scalzo's revealing memoir. Combining passages from his book with photographs, video, and Super-8 film, Evidence of My Existence brings to life a deeply personal account of 17 years spent moving from one new story to the next. Like the book, it is a manic exposition on a life in photojournalism and the consequences of obsessive wanderlust. For Lo Scalzo, a veteran US News & World Report photographer, as with so many photojournalists, it's about the going. More…

One year ago Matt Eich, 20, and Melissa Turk, 19, were typical college students. Then, everything started changing.

The Ninth Floor

Produced by: Jessica Dimmock, Brian Storm, Diane Cook

In 2004, anywhere from 20 to 30 young addicts lived on the ninth floor of an elegant narrow building overlooking Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The squatters had turned the sprawling apartment into a dark, desperate and chaotic place. People hustled, scored, shot and smoked wherever they could. Friends conned each other for their next hit. They slept on piles of clothes on the floor. The power was shut off; the bathroom unusable; the kitchen filled with garbage. Anything of value was sold off. For nearly three years, Jessica Dimmock followed this crew documenting what happened to them after eviction, how they fought to get clean, sank deeper into addiction, went to jail, started families and struggled to survive.

Produced by: Scott Strazzante, Wes Pope, Chad A. Stevens, Andy Webster, Brian Storm

On July 2, 2002, Jean and Harlow Cagwin watched as their home - the last remnant of their 118-acre cattle farm in Lockport, Illinois - was torn down clearing the way for a new housing development. Several years later, Ed and Amanda Grabenhofer and their four children moved into the new Willow Walk subdivision, their house just yards from where the Cagwin's home once stood. Common Ground introduces us to the lives touched by this land, as photographer Scott Strazzante takes us on a visual journey exploring the differences and similarities of these two families while simultaneously asking us to look at what is common among us all.
