In Katrina’s Wake : Portraits of Loss from an Unnatural Disaster, by Elizabeth Royte, Bill McKibben and Susan Zakin; photographs by Chris Jordan (New York : Princeton Architectural Press, 2006)
In Katrina’s Wake : Portraits of Loss from an Unnatural Disaster interweaves the photographs of Chris Jordan and essays by Elizabeth Royte, Bill McKibben and Susan Zakin to “capture the tragedy” and explore its “causes and effects.” A portion of the profits will help rebuild New Orleans.
“…my hope is that these images might encourage some reflection on the part that we each play, and the loss that we all suffer, when a preventable catastrophe of this magnitude happens to the people of our own country. Katrina has illuminated our interconnectedness, and it makes our personal accountability as members of a conscious society ever more difficult to deny.” – Chris Jordan
