"This was the last neighborhood to be let back into the city," explains Stacy Rockwood "work started as soon as we got in." She shares the challenges of rebuilding her home over a long period of time which also gives her great satisfaction. Talking on the relief effort all over New Orleans, Rockwood says, "Our recovery came from people from all over the United States. That just gives me great hope."
Stacy Rockwood is one of the residents of the single New Orleans block documented in the wake of Hurricane Katrina by photographer Dave Anderson from 2006 to 2010. 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.
Dave Anderson's work has been featured in magazines from Esquire to Stern and can be found in the collections of prominent museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans; the Musée de la Photographie, Charleroi; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. Vince Aletti of the New Yorker has called his work "as clear-eyed and unsentimental as it is soulful and sympathetic."
