The Photo Albums Hurricane Katrina Left Behind
Professor of Art, Stan Strembicki, went back a to New Orleans a month after Katrina hit and found/collected the photo albums of the millions of Black Americans affected by the hurricane. For his series Memory Loss, Strembicki found and photographed half-burnt and disfigured pictures of weddings, communions, family portraits, or simple scenes of daily life. It's quite eerie how many of the images remain in tact despite being submerged in water for so long but perhaps it's a metaphorical testament to the spirit of the people of this region of the USA.
