To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, The Washington Post asked people from New Orleans to share photos that captured the spirit and charm of their city and community on Instagram. Creating the hashtag #HereIsMyNOLA, we sorted through a stream of Instagram photos where one can see an array of distinct neighborhoods; a city bursting with music, streets that become an outdoor party, and much more. The photos shown here do not represent every perspective or every side of the city, or the many different voices from members of the community.

In Sight teamed up with the photo collage initiative Echosight, created by photographers Daniella Zalcman and Danny Ghitis, to create colorful mash-ups that reflect The Big Easy through the eyes of those who know its heartbeat the most: its long-time residents.
