One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds

"There were some wonderful people on the block and I became invested in them almost immediately" says Anderson as he discusses how his relationship with his subjects shaped the work. Anderson goes on to discuss the effect that limiting himself to photographing the rebuilding process of one specific block had on his process. Anderson introduces and tells the stories of key images from the project and the people depicted in them.
Using portraiture, still lifes, and abstract images, Dave Anderson reveals the evolution of both the street and its houses as residents rebuilt. His images are gathered in One Block, a monograph published by Aperture, and remind us how determination, resilience, and the bonds of community help us to endure.
