When American photographer Richard Misrach gave 69 photographs to the MFAH in May 2010, the museum became the bearers of a singular collection of photos documenting graffiti left by New Orleans evacuees. While media coverage of the disaster has largely focussed on placing blame for the hurricane's disastrous aftermath, this exhibition gives a human face to the wreckage. Coinciding with the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, this display illustrates why Misrach is credited with helping to pioneer the renaissance of color photography and large-scale presentation in the 1970s.
