> DESCRIPTION
In this powerful project, Seattle-based photographer Chris Jordan portrays the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on a personal scale, framing poignantly desolate details in the ruined landscape. Jordan’s work focuses on the darkly compelling detritus of American consumer society. A book accompanies the exhibition, including reproductions of Jordan’s photographs, with essays by Bill McKibben and Susan Zakin. Jordan has pledged to donate 100% of the proceeds from this nonprofit book to Gulf Coast hurricane relief charities and institutions that conduct global warming research and advocacy. On view in the Mezzanine Gallery.
