Larry Schwarm grew up in Greensburg, Kansas—a town that may now be best-known for its devastation after a F5 tornado on May 5, 2007. Schwarm made photographs of the storm’s aftermath that help us understand the power of nature and how Greensburg and its citizens’ lives were drastically altered by this storm.
