Photographs of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast by Richard MisrachJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 10 Aug 2011
Back in 2005, Richard Misrach did a series of photographs in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast documenting decrepit homes and properties with spray painted messages along car doors and walls. The scrawling messages convey the frustration, anger and disparity of the region post-Katrina. Looking back on the project, it was a great way to document the details of the scenario that much of the media may have glazed over. You can currently seen the photos in the "Picturing Modernity" exhibition at SFMoMA.
