One Block: Photographs by Dave Anderson
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Featuring work by: Dave Anderson

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 10, to Sat, Oct 8 2011

Hurricane Katrina caused a seismic shift to the city of New Orleans and the Gulf region. Could rebuilding ever fix what had been broken? Would the city ever get its mojo back? Would that thing, whatever it was, that was so uniquely New Orleans return, dissipate, or transform into something completely different? And what about the thousands of small communities that existed within the city—would they survive, or even flourish? What was lost was clear, but what could be recovered was not at all clear.

Following the storm, Dave Anderson spent three years repeatedly photographing a single block in the Holy Cross section of New Orleans’s Lower Ninth Ward, following both the obvious physical rebuilding of the homes as well as the evolving psychological state of its residents.

Dave Anderson’s work has appeared in magazines from Time to Esquire and is in various museum collections. His book Rough Beauty won the Santa Fe Center for Photography 2005 Project Competition, and One Block: An New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds was published by Aperture in 2010.

Book Signing: Sat, Sep 10, 6pm
