Editorial Reviews

Review

"Many of the pages in the book show before-and-after pictures: ruin and recovery. There are stunning, rich portraits of people who have been through so much. Their stories can be read not just in their faces, but in their mantels and their dogs and their FEMA trailers and their renewed gardens - growing and green in defiance of experience and despair." --New York TImes Lens Blog, John Schwartz, 26-Aug-10

"...Anderson has exhibited a remarkable talent for dissecting communities and imparting a strong sense of home by means of what he visualizes as the good that unites us all, despite perceived assumptions or apparent odds...In One Block, Anderson steadily peels back the layers and exposes the physical and psychological landscape amongst the average and mundane, thus finding the remarkable within." --Fraction Magazine, Susan Burnstine, Issue 17

"One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds...offers a unique view of the ongoing physical and psychological recovery...It is through Anderson's commitment and relationship with the residents that One Block yields an intimate understanding of not only the magnitude of Katrina's impact but of the resilience of the people of New Orleans." --Daylight Magazine, Curtis Hamilton, 11-Sep-10

"...Anderson evokes a sense of place and the rhythms of ordinary life through portraits, interiors and small vignettes." --Photo District News, Aug-10

This book was both inspiring and dear to my heart, because it showed the blood sweat and tears of my people at hurricane Katrina. I simply loved it!!!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely stunning book by the author of "Rough Beauty", once again taking a hard but gorgeous look at a difficult subject. If you want to understand the situation in New Orleans -- not just read more words about it, but understand what the people there are going through -- this is a great way to do it. Anderson is a brilliant photographer who sees straight into the people and things he sees and delivers them back to the viewer with passion and clarity.
