LOS INVISIBLES: LATINO IMMIGRANTS WHO REBUILT NEW ORLEANS
CALL TO PHOTOGRAPHERS in New Orleans and across the country who have documentary photos of the Latino immigrant workers who were vital to the reconstruction of post-Katrina New Orleans from the fall of 2005 to the present.
As we approach the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the levee failures that doomed the city, the dirtiest little secret of the rebuilding of New Orleans is that it owes a great debt to the thousands of immigrant workers who literally rebuilt the city with their noble labor. While the immigrant workers were visible throughout every part of the city on rooftops and construction sites, they have remained practically invisible on a social level to the general public of New Orleans who have benefited from their labor. The undocumented status of many have kept this huge work force in the shadows.
LOS INVISIBLES exhibition aims to honor them and their contribution to the city.
Photographers with documentary photos, portraiture, and conceptual images that explore the Latino immigrant presence in post-Katrina New Orleans are invited to submit four images per submission. A modest $20 entry fee is required.
Selected entries will be exhibited at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans from
August 14 through September 4, 2010.
Submissions deadline: August 2, 2010
Notification of acceptance: August 5, 2010
Deadline for receiving accepted works: August 10, 2010
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 14, 2010 from 6 - 9PM
Juror: José Torres-Tama
About the Juror: José Torres-Tama explores the North American Dream mythology and the Latino immigrant experience through critical writings, visual and performance art. He has served as curator for an exhibit of New Orleans photographers at Vanderbilt University in 2007, and last year, he was the juror for the highly successful CALIENTE/HOT photo exhibition at the New Orleans Photo Alliance. He is a recipient of an NEA Award for his performance work and a Louisiana Theater Fellow. He recently received a 2009-10 Creation Fund Award from the National Performance Network to develop a new multimedia performance called ALIENS, IMMIGRANTS & OTHER EVILDOERS, which explores the criminalization of Latinos immigrants in the USA. In 2008, the Joan Mitchell Foundation of New York awarded him and the Ogden Museum publication funds for an exhibition catalog to document his portrait series on Creole culture called New Orleans Free People of Color & Their Legacy. Published by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, the art book accompanies the exhibit of Torres-Tama’s portraits that opened at the Ogden in October 2009. His post-Katrina commentaries have aired on NPR's Latino USA weekly news journal, for which he is a regular contributor. www.torrestama.com
- To keep this issue in front of people's eyes and therefore keep us all thinking about what has happened - we all forget so quickly.
- 100% of what is made from the sales of this book online will be donated to a renewable energy project in a small, rural community that would normally not be able to afford it.
You are invited to celebrate the release of Before During After this Saturday, July 31 at Octavia Books.
Photographers (and NOPA members!) Elizabeth Kleinveld, Thomas Neff, Samuel Portera, Jennifer Shaw, Mark Sindler, Zack Smith and Jonathan Traveisa will be present to sign copies of the book. Read more about it here.

Tune in to WWL-TV at 8:40 tomorrow morning to here him talk about the project.
One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds 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. Join photographer Dave Anderson for a talk and book signing on the occasion of the release of the new Aperture monograph One Block.
'It's a shame that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day is work. He can't eat for eight hours; he can't drink for eight hours; he can't make love for eight hours. The only thing a man can do for eight hours is work.'--William Faulkner
There are a relatively few topics we can all relate to, the big ones being birth and death. But what happens in-between, for most of us, is the process of living, of getting by, of succeeding, of toil, and of searching. Work could be your job, your 9-5, it could be someone else's, or it could be the absence of employment, an affliction all too common in this day and age. Work is what we do to feed us physically, emotionally, mentally. Chasing dreams or dollars, show us your WoRK.
The New Orleans Photo Alliance is seeking images that depict the daily drudgery, struggle, joy, and determinism in the life of the human being.
**'WoRK' will have a sister-show in Lawrence, KS at the Lawrence Percolator. Both shows will focus on the same subject, but utilize different mediums. Receptions will be linked up via web-cam.**

ONE BLOCK: A NEW ORLEANS NEIGHBORHOOD REBUILDS
Photographs by Dave Anderson, Essay by Chris Rose
Anderson’s compassionate treatment of the neighborhood’s difficult circumstances has drawn comparisons to the work of 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 is once again in jeopardy.
One Block reflects Anderson’s affection for New Orleans and his fascination with the power of human resilience – both individually and collectively.
Talks, book signings, a party, and an exhibition will take place in New Orleans surrounding the publication of One Block, and marking the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The centerpiece event is a block party co-hosted by Aperture, The Oxford American and Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans on the block where Anderson made the photographs. The event, which is open to the public, will feature local cuisine and artist performances and celebrate the power of community.
The release will be celebrated with several upcoming events in New Orleans:

About the Photographer and Author:
Dave Anderson has been recognized as “one of the shooting stars of the American photo scene” by Germany’s fotoMAGAZIN and named a “Rising Star” by Photo District News. A multi-talented image-maker, Dave worked in the Clinton White House and at MTV before discovering photography. His acclaimed first project, “Rough Beauty” was the winner of the 2005 National Project Competition awarded by Center, Santa Fe and was published with an essay by Anne Wilkes Tucker. Vince Aletti of the New Yorker has called his work “as clear-eyed and unsentimental as it is soulful and sympathetic.” Anderson’s work has been featured in magazines from Esquire to Stern and can be found in the collections of prominent museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans; the Musée de la Photographie, Charleroi; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. As a filmmaker, Dave’s original video series, “SoLost,” shot for The Oxford American, was recently named a finalist at the 2010 National Magazine Awards.

About Aperture Foundation
Aperture—located in New York’s Chelsea art district—is a world-renowned non-profit publisher and exhibition space dedicated to promoting photography in all its forms. Aperture was founded in 1952 by photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, and Minor White; historian Beaumont Newhall; and writer/curator Nancy Newhall, among others. These visionaries created a new quarterly periodical, Aperture magazine, to foster both the development and the appreciation of the photographic medium and its practitioners. In the 1960s, Aperture expanded to include the publication of books (over five hundred to date) that comprise one of the most comprehensive and innovative libraries in the history of photography and art. Aperture’s programs now include artist lectures and panel discussions, limited-edition photographs, and traveling exhibitions that show at major museums and arts institutions in the U.S. and internationally.
