Joshua Mann Pailet: Recover, Rebuild, Rebirth features twenty photographs taken in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and twenty photographs taken across America after The Storm through 2015. The disorder and disruption that resulted from The Storm incited a change in New Orleans as a community. This exhibition invites viewers to consider the relationship between Pailet’s Storm work and his photographs taken in the past decade.
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 27, 2015 6:00–8:00pm
