© Richard Misrach
To observe the upcoming 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Richard Misrach will be exhibiting the photographs he took of the wreckage in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The 69 photographs that will be on view are donated on behalf of Misrach. Misrach has also gifted his works to the the New Orleans Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Destroy This Memory is the accompanying book published by Aperture. The book does not contain any essays or titles, allowing the bold graffiti messages captured in Misrach’s photographs to speak for themselves. All proceeds from royalties will go towards The Make It Right Foundation to help rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans.
