On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina bore down on the city of New Orleans, resulting in one of the greatest tragedies in American history.

The in-depth news coverage provided by The Times-Picayune, the leading daily newspaper of New Orleans, contributed to it winning two Pulitizer Prizes.

This is the story of The Times-Picayune photographers who stayed behind and covered the devastation of their own city, recalled in their own words two years later.

Produced by Danny Bourque.
