One Block

One Block follows the reconstruction of a single New Orleans block from 2006 to 2010 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, delivering a powerful portrait of the storm’s ongoing physical and psychological impact on the city and its residents. Using portraiture, still lifes, and abstract images, Dave Anderson documents the evolution of both the street and its houses as residents rebuild, exploring the very nature of community while testing its resilience.

Author: Dave Anderson


Anderson’s compassionate treatment of the neighborhood’s straitened financial circumstances has drawn comparisons to coverage of the Great Depression by Dorothea Lange and other Farm Security Administration–funded photographers. Seventy years later, between the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina and the current housing crisis, the stability and permanence of the American home are once again in jeopardy. Yet, is an extension of Anderson’s optimistic belief that the good within each of us is what unites us, as well as his hope that this commonality will afford us the grace to both endure and emerge from our current turmoil.
