I met the Kavocevich family two days after Hurricane Katrina hit Biloxi, Mississippi.
They were hard to miss; their house was one of the only ones left in their neighborhood of Point Cadet.
Around a month after meeting them, Whoopi Goldberg interviewed them on MSNBC for a hurricane relief benefit.
Their story was one of several I captured while documenting the hurricane’s destruction but it remains my favorite.
Mike and Lanie’s calm demeanor is juxtaposed with the devastation all around them.
