Photographically, this collection is more of an accident than anything. Nearly all of it was done during the year following Katrina. The cameras served only as a pretense to wander and just take in what I had found to love about the city — knowing it was to be a long time before I might return to experience any of this again.

It is a place that may be even more difficult to talk about than it is to photograph. Even after being there for more than a decade it lived just at the edge of imagination …

only to be viewed from the curb.


About the Author

Robert Reichers
greasyspoon Portland, Oregon, US
First of five kids, each born in different places. Most of grade school in Yosemite Valley. Three things - Geologic time, John Muir as hero, and discovering what I was to undertake – making marks on paper. After a stint in the Navy, returned to school (biology) but was hijacked by the art department where photography, its history, masters, techniques and possibilities were explored. Portland, OR – Performed with CIRQUE – Jann McCauley and Company. Santa Fe, NM – Depth of culture, history. Essential to honing imaging skills/aesthetic. Portland, OR – Digital imagery (Mac/PS), box constructions. New Orleans, LA – Opened the Grace Note. Again, depth of culture etc.. Inspiration comes from (a) places and objects with an obvious past and (b) the lives and reflections of people working outside photography.

Robert, this may be New Orleans after Kartrina but the photographs transcend the place and time becoming unique little gems that can stand along as art.
