Overview

A painterly vision of New Orleans� pre- and poststorm neighborhoods. Phil Sandusky is a nationally renowned plein air artist known for his cityscapes. In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Sandusky returned home and began recording the devastation. The result is a collection that offers a vision of the beauty and fragility of New Orleans and displays the awesome power of nature. The book contains 76 color reproductions: 30 created a year before Katrina; 30 in the aftermath of the storm, focusing primarily on scenes at the lakefront and the Lower Ninth Ward; and the last 16 painted one year after Katrina, showing the city�s painstaking recovery. Sandusky prefaces the paintings with background about his style and a journal chronicling his experience.
