Join us for a presentation and book signing featuring photographer Jennifer Shaw celebrating the release of Hurricane Story, a spellbinding visual tale told in forty-six photographs and simple, understated prose. This first-person narrative, illustrated through toys and dolls photographed using a plastic camera, depicts Jennifer Shaw’s strange but true tale of her evacuation from New Orleans, including the dramatic birth of her first son on the very day that Hurricane Katrina made landfall, the pressures on her marriage as she and her husband struggle with depression and rage, and the return to New Orleans with their newest family member in time for Mardi Gras. The photographs, at turns humorous and haunting, contrast deftly with the prose. Originally self-published as an exhibition catalog, Chin Music Press is publishing a revised hardcover edition of Hurricane Story, including an introduction by Rob Walker, author of Letters From New Orleans and the “Consumed” columnist for The New York Times Magazine.
