Photography: New Orleans After the Flood
Photography After the Flood
By Nicolaus Mills
Dissent Magazine, Spring 2007
A review and commentary on the photography of Robert Polidori:
“Robert Polidori’s photographs of New Orleans challenge our sense of how the world is supposed to look. Cars stand upside down. Uprooted trees rest on houses. In contrast to the familiar photos of bombed-out Hiroshima, where everything but the walls of a few buildings lies flattened on the ground, Polidori’s post-flood New Orleans is a collage of random disorder. Nothing is where it should be.”
