9781597111430: Dave Anderson: One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds

American photographer Dave Anderson's One Block follows the reconstruction of a single New Orleans block in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, delivering a powerful portrait of the storm's ongoing physical and psychological impact on the city and its residents. Using portraiture, still lifes and abstract images, Anderson documents the evolution of both the street and its houses as residents literally rebuild their lives, exploring the very nature of community while testing its resilience. Anderson's compassionate treatment of the neighborhood's straitened financial circumstances and its courageous reconstruction has drawn comparisons to coverage of the Great Depression by Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans and other Farm Security Administration-funded photographers. Seventy years later, between the devastation left by Katrina and the current housing crisis, the stability and permanence of the American home are once again in jeopardy, lending Anderson's record a heightened, timely pertinence. One Block is an extension of Anderson's optimistic belief that the good within each of us is what unites us, as well as his hope that this commonality will afford us the grace to both endure and emerge from our current turmoil.

Review:

"Many of the pages in the book show before-and-after pictures: ruin and recovery. There are stunning, rich portraits of people who have been through so much. Their stories can be read not just in their faces, but in their mantels and their dogs and their FEMA trailers and their renewed gardens - growing and green in defiance of experience and despair." --New York TImes Lens Blog, John Schwartz, 26-Aug-10

"...Anderson has exhibited a remarkable talent for dissecting communities and imparting a strong sense of home by means of what he visualizes as the good that unites us all, despite perceived assumptions or apparent odds...In One Block, Anderson steadily peels back the layers and exposes the physical and psychological landscape amongst the average and mundane, thus finding the remarkable within." --Fraction Magazine, Susan Burnstine, Issue 17

"One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds...offers a unique view of the ongoing physical and psychological recovery...It is through Anderson's commitment and relationship with the residents that One Block yields an intimate understanding of not only the magnitude of Katrina's impact but of the resilience of the people of New Orleans." --Daylight Magazine, Curtis Hamilton, 11-Sep-10

"...Anderson evokes a sense of place and the rhythms of ordinary life through portraits, interiors and small vignettes." --Photo District News, Aug-10
