At a TED conference in Washington, DC yesterday, a small band of photographers presented images they’d acquired during a week-long trip to the Gulf. Along with a journalist who blogged about the trip, the photographers found ways around BP’s control of oiled beaches and the airspace over the Gulf. They captured aerial views of frothy crude and controlled burns, panoramic scenes of pelicans rising above oiled wetlands, and moving portraits of Gulf residents.
