It's just on sale, a curious photographic book with the purpose to show the dramatic sense of a family who moved from New Orleans, six years ago by Hurricane Katrina. The author has chosen to illustrate the work with re-creations made with a Holga and a few toys.
Six years ago, Jennifer Shaw (photographer) had no other choice but run away with her family from New Orleans. The impending arrival of Hurricane Katrina made them live a truly dramatic experience. Now, Jennifer has decided to recreate those intense moments, using her Holga. The tunnel effect, blur and genuine ended of the Holga images, gives a special sensitivity and dramatic addition to the snapshots. A book full of intense sensations (includes the birth of a son the day that Katrina made landfall). Undoubtedly, an idea as creative as great.
