The images in Hurricane Season are taken in the southern part of the federal state of Louisiana in the United States. In this peculiar landscape live millions of America's poorest citizens. It is as if nature itself indicates the level of segregation, the lower the country level is, the greater the proportion of black and poor. Every year these areas are flooded by the summer and autumn storms that strike Louisiana. When these storms develop into major hurricanes the poorest and most low-lying parts suffer the most. Floods are a natural part of life and the inhabitants have, in a fatalistic way, adapted to the frequency of the hurricanes.
