HTMLGIANT Features Hurricane Story

HTMLGIANT contributor Roxane Gay posted a wonderful piece featuring Hurricane Story today, showcasing several photographs from the book:

Shaw’s take is unique both in the spareness she uses to write of her family’s ordeal and because of her stunning photography of children’s toys to depict that experience–blurry, almost surreal, full color images stretching off every page—an interesting contrast to so many of the post-Katrina images to which we have become accustomed.”

Her post also mentions another Chin Music Press title, Where We Know: New Orleans As Home as another great book to learn about New Orleans long after the Hurricane Katrina coverage has faded. Read the post here.
