THE DOLL - Joplin, Mo.
Photo and caption by Jameson West
I saw a child’s doll resting on a bed of barbed wire far from anyone’s home just as the sun was setting in the days following the storm. I came upon it by chance lying on the ground, and for me it captures better than any panorama the mixture of sadness, loss and, ultimately, hope left behind in the tornado’s aftermath.
