Rebecca Skinner is a photographer who started out with a grant from her university to visit Louisiana five years after Hurricane Katrina. A chance meeting with photographer James Balog inspired her to follow his footsteps back to Banda Aceh, Indonesia, where he’d gone after the tsunami there in 2004. She spent a month in Banda Aceh in 2011 to document the changes and growth that had happened since Balog’s visit. Her uncle is rock climber Todd Skinner, and he encouraged her to push her limits and explore the planet.
