Click to preview the lower ninth: K+36 photo book

On August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina made landfall near the Louisiana/Mississippi border, forever changing the lives of thousands of people. One of the most devastated areas was New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, submerged beneath millions of gallons of water, in some places by as much as ten feet.

This collection of photographs by M Styborski documents three years of loss and recovery, destruction and rebuilding, and despair and hope in one of New Orleans’ oldest neighborhoods.

Who needs a nuclear holocaust while we have hurricanes?

The images give a face to a desolation that strikes without discrimination. Your art reveals without preaching. Thank you for this.
