Pictures of Words ~ Richard Misrach, After Katrina
This is among the images Richard Misrach made of graffiti in New Orleans in the months following Hurricane Katrina. His pictures of words will be published this fall in Destroy This Memory (Aperture). And many of the pictures are now on exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Misrach donated the images to the Museum as well as to the Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery, San Francisco's MoMA, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Misrach has pledged the royalties from the book to the Make It Right Foundation.
