Six years have passed since Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, yet the effects of Katrina and its political aftermath remain tangible throughout the region. During September, One, One Thousand is featuring two storm-related photography projects concerning both loss and recovery in the New Orleans metropolitan area. Our first September feature is a selection of work from Jennifer Shaw’s Hurricane Story—a project in which Shaw uses miniature figures to recreate her family’s evacuation experience.

"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, — all in one." — John Ruskin
