The important thing about his photos, Fishman said, is "this is a method to try to add some money. After I looked at the prints, I said 'there are some really great images here.'
Back in California, Fishman heard via e-mail from a woman in Biloxi who'd seen Black and White magazine. She wanted pricing information on one of the shots. Then, "she said, 'I was moved by your photography of our hurricane-ravaged community. As a resident of the Gulf Coast, I thank you for capturing our reality that is both beautiful and heart wrenching.'"
