Scholars will be writing for decades about the catastrophic failures that underpinned and magnified the impact of the recent winter storm in Texas. The intertwining crises and the scale of human suffering will require exhaustive research across multiple disciplines. Not Even Past will be producing specialized content over the coming weeks related to the storm but for now we’ve started to collect images sent in by members of the UT community.
These images are not intended to document the full extent of the storm and the resultant suffering but rather to contribute to the first draft of history. Some of the images have captions supplied by the photographers, others do not. If you would like to contribute images please click here. Together we believe these images provide a powerful representation of the extraordinary sequence of days in which life in Texas ground to a halt. Please note that this is an evolving resource and we will continue to add to it as we receive images. We do not edit images or captions and the names of the contributors can be found at the bottom of the page. We thank all our contributors for their willingness to share their experience.
