A Sustained Presence on SFMOMA’s Open Space

Since 1994, Lewis Watts, local Richmond, California photographer has been documenting the city of New Orleans. Today, on the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina I consider Watts’ relationship to the South through his role as witness and informed participant. Focusing on a few images from Watts’ impressive New Orleans portfolio, the article “A Sustained Presence: The Photography of Lewis Watts on the 4th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina” seeks to describe New Orleans as a city whose complexities neither began nor ended with Hurricane Katrina. The full article is available here.
