New Orleans Photojournalist and Editorial Photographer Edmund D. Fountain - Portrait
Louis Scott stands for a portrait on Dale Street in New Orleans near where the body of his father fell after he was shot in front of his home on January 7. Losing his father earned Scott no reprieve from New Orleans' violence. In June, he exited the highway to avoid an erratic driver, only for the driver to follow him up the ramp. Two men opened fire with an AK-47 and .40-caliber handgun. The AK ripped through Scott's wrist, the .40 through his forearm, he said.
