Before During After is out..and at CANARY! / by Zack Smith

I am honored to be a part of this amazing book...4 years in the making...

Before, During, After is a visual and literary narrative of how Hurricane Katrina has transformed the lives and work of twelve photographers from Southeast Louisiana. Five years after the storm's wake, we look back to discover Katrina's imprint on the creative expression of each artist. The book emphasizes not only the effect of Hurricane Katrina but also the way individuals are influenced by their environments, particularly in times of dramatic upheaval. Adding depth to the pictorial representation, each photographer has written an intimate account of how Katrina changed his or her life, work and vision of the future.
