Still Here by Joseph Rodriguez
Book DescriptionHurricane Katrina was the most costly natural disaster in the history of the United States, permanently displacing hundreds of thousands of New Orleans and Texas residents. The news coverage at the time exposed the conditions of extreme squalor suffered by the impoverished African American citizens. Rodriguez documents the expressions of those communities still traumatised by the disaster, photographing and interviewing families and individuals who are struggling to rebuild their lives. A reminder that despite their immense loss, many are still persevering.
