First Personalities: Michael M. Koehler

This week’s City Paper cover photo come from past Salon artist, Michael M. Koehler. Koehler’s photos, Fade to Black, document the tragically frustrating aftermath of the BP oil spill and its effects on the waters, coastline and people of the Gulf region. The disaster and myriad aims at fixing it have become commonplace in the news. It’s become easy to cynically poke fun at the big players and their mistakes. Thankfully, Michael reminds us about what’s on the line: the natural and personal devastation.
