I was able to photograph the April 9th, 2015 tornado that struck the town of Fairdale, IL. However, this tornado caused other serious amounts of damage across Illinois. This blog post is just a small portion of my account during the day of photographing the damage.
I will create a blog post specifically for the house that I photographed, along with the story I wrote for the "Rockford Register Star".
It was a very awakening experience for me and my ability to document a disaster and although I loved doing it, I gained humility and compassion for these people. I also appreciate that I was able to photograph Earl's house (next blog post) and the other people that witnessed this tornado firsthand.
