Editorial Reviews


"Searing images from Katrina and its aftermath"
--ABC News

"In a series of moving portraits, photographer Mario Tama has documented the tragedy, reconstruction, and resurgent optimism of New Orleans in the five years since Hurricane Katrina." --The Daily Beast

"Mario Tama has been covering Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath since Day One." --Time

"The message that comes through the images isn't a linear communication of the progression of gradual renewed stability and restoration of the character of the city and its people. Instead, what is conveyed is a subtle thread of a people so spirited and unique that even America’s most destructive modern natural disaster could not break them." —The Epoch Times

"Mr. Tama believed he had a duty to tell their stories, so he returned 15 times to photograph the slow recovery. These images [are] beautifully composed, human and soulful, with an occasional flash of offbeat humor..." —New York Times Lens

Tama’s imagery from New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina stood out among the vast media coverage and earned him numerous accolades and recognition. Remarkably, when the catastrophe waned and other press went away, Tama stayed...and continued to document the process of recovery (and some of its terrible failures)." —The Huffington Post

"But turn the page and you’ll find images of joy. A big, bold, laugh that seems to echo from the side-shot of Angela Perkins. A jubilant grin as girls jump rope using a phone cable. A mid-air flip by a street performer. And it’s easy to see that, despite indescribable loss, the people of New Orleans have found reasons for renewal." —The Southern Literary Review

Format: Hardcover
The spirit of people isn't easily defeated. "Coming Back: New Orleans Resurgent" tells the tale of people returning to New Orleans after its massive destruction by the events of Hurricane Katrina, which left the city forever changed. But the people wouldn't abandon their home for good, and have returned to continue their lives in spite of the awful events. With plenty of photos, Mario Tama captures the indomitable human spirit.
