Louisiana State Museum Exhibition

It was nice to have a distraction. - Jennifer Shaw, 2006

“Hurricane Story,” an exhibit of photographs by Jennifer Shaw, opens at the Louisiana State Museum on Oct. 21. With twenty vivid images, Shaw narrates her experience during Hurricane Katrina. Told in vignettes created of toys, carefully lit and captured with a modified Holga camera—itself more of a toy than the choice of a professional photographer such as Shaw—the compositions alternate between the whimsical and the deadly serious. The exhibit opens on Oct. 21 at The Presbytere, located in the French Quarter on Jackson Square, and will be on view through March, 2012.
