A year has passed since the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the largest oil disaster in history.
In August 2010, five months after, I travelled across four states with photographer Jess Hurd, documenting the environmental and social impact, not just of the oil spill, but also the dispersant chemicals used to “clean” up the oil. The footage from that trip became the film report Gulf.
One year on and the effect on the environment and the communities of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida by both oil and dispersant continues, as the BBC report The Monster Under The Water catalogues.
