Ruddy Roye was in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina struck the city. While photographing the aftermath, he wished he had a service that could quickly publish his images.

Years later, when Hurricane Sandy hit New York, Instagram was becoming the method of choice for many photojournalists. He writes:

My Instagram account has become a way for me to question everything around me. The media has a way of deleting the stories of people who society does not want to deal with. This is my humble way of putting these stories back in people’s faces — forming a real and active dialogue about these issues.
