Graphic images of a landscape of destruction…New Orleanians have seen enough of them. As the 5th anniversary of the Hurricanes and flooding that devastated New Orleans and the Gulf coast approaches, many of these images will, no doubt, resurface. The collection of art in “Delugians” focuses on a different aspect of the aftermath, how the emotional, social, and psychological effects of this catastrophe manifest themselves in the work of 4 lens-based artists. Curator, Bryce Lankard, has worked closely with many artists, particularly photographers, in the New Orleans post-Katrina environment, most notably through the foundation of the New Orleans Photo Alliance, a non-profit photographic arts organization that began shortly after the natural and man-made disaster.
