Portrait of the Storm: Tuscaloosa, AL by Xavier Burgin

Badge finalist Finalist for The Film Skillet 2013 Documentary Film Contest in Documentary

On April 27, 2011 an EF4 Tornado hit the city of Tuscaloosa devastating the landscape and lives of many people.
The tornado also ripped through Birmingham, Pratt City, Moody, and other areas in Alabama.
I was lucky enough to be on campus. The tornado ended up veering away from the UA campus, but decimated the central hub in Tuscaloosa.
Thousands have lost their homes and the death toll keeps rising.
As a photographer I knew I had to document as much as possible before the authorities started sectioning off places.
As I was taking photographs I decided it would be best to document the aftermath as a way to keep the people of Tuscaloosa in mind.
