Ha salido a la venta un curioso libro fotográfico que pretende mostrar la dramática sensación que vivió una familia en su huída de Nueva Orleans, hace seis años, por el huracán Katrina. La autora ha decidido ilustrar la obra con recreaciones realizadas con una Holga y unos pocos juguetes.
Hace seis años, Jennifer Shaw (fotógrafa) no tuvo otro remedio que huir junto a su familia de Nueva Orleans. La inminente llegada del huracán Katrina les hizo vivir una experiencia realmente dramática. Ahora, Jennifer ha decidido recrear aquellos momentos tan intensos, sirviéndose de su Holga. El efecto túnel, desenfoque y genuino acabado de las 46 imágenes hechas con la Holga, otorgan un dramatismo y sensibilidad adicional a las instantáneas. Jennifer solo se ha servido de antiguos juguetes para retratarlos con su Toy Camera. Un libro repleto de sensaciones muy intensas (contempla el nacimiento de un hijo el día que el Katrina tocó tierra). Sin duda, una idea tan creativa como genial.
