"Inundated" - A visual journey through historic flooding in 2015

Last October, Columbia, SC photojournalist Sean Rayford spent 8 days covering historic flooding where more than 20 inches of rain fell in parts of the state of South Carolina. Recently recognized by Time Magazine as one of 51 must follow Instagram users, the USC graduate logged over 100 hours documenting the effects of the disaster. Including the immediate flash flooding in the state capital and their recovery efforts to the tiny Brown's Ferry community consumed by the Black River in Georgetown County. In an effort to produce a single visual historic document, Rayford has edited down the thousands of photos he made into a gorgeous 50 page hardcover image wrap book of photography.


Titled Inundated, the book will ONLY be available for purchase through the end of 2016. Proceeds will benefit the S. Beltline Gills Creek Community Relief Foundation.
