I have two prints that are currently in the Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s Louisiana Contemporary show, a competitive, juried exhibition that comes once a year. It’s a real honor to have work selected for this show and I’m super pleased that I had a couple of my photographs chosen.

The prints are both from a Katrina project I’ve been working on for a couple of years now over on the Mississippi Gulf coast. Ten years after the storm of all storms, evidence still abounds of that terrible event. Houses swept away, all that remains being foundations and the sturdy live oak trees that continue to endure. Walking amidst these ruins, I sense the lives that were shattered along with the missing houses.

These photographs are part of that larger project; I don’t really know when or if it will ever be finished.

  2. Nick Roberts says:

    What wonderful images… they tell a story of loss and the memory of what was yet isn’t seen.

  3. Thanks Nick. You’ve gotten my intention exactly right.
