9781597111638: Richard Misrach: Destroy This Memory

The photographs in Richard Misrach's "Destroy This Memory" are a stark, affecting reminder of the physical and psychological impact of Hurricane Katrina as told by those on the ground, and seen through the lens of a contemporary master. Rather than simply surveying the damage, Misrach--who has photographed the region regularly since the 1970s, most notably for his ongoing "Cancer Alley" project--found himself drawn to the hurricane-inspired graffiti: messages scrawled in spray paint, crayons, chalk or whatever materials residents and rescue workers happened to have on hand. At turns threatening, desperate, clinical and even darkly humorous, the phrases he captures--the only text that appears in the book--offer revealing and unique human perspectives on the devastation and shock left in the wake of this disaster. "Destroy This Memory" presents previously unpublished and starkly compelling material, all of which Misrach shot with his 4 MP pocket camera while also working on a separate archive of over 1,000 photographs with his 8 x 10 large-format camera. Created between October and December 2005, this series of images serves as a potent, unalloyed document of the raw experiences of those left to fend for themselves in the aftermath of Katrina. With no essay, titles or even page numbers in the way, the words on these homes, cars and trees offer a searing testament that continues to speak volumes, five years after their original inscription.
Richard Misrach (born 1949) is credited with helping to pioneer the renaissance of color photography and large-scale presentation in the 1970s. He has exhibited extensively, and his work is held in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as The Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Art Institute of Chicago.

About the Author:

Richard Misrach is one of the most influential photographers of his generation, well-known for his ongoing project Desert Cantos. His work is held by major institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. He is the recipient of four National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Kulturpreis for Lifetime Achievement in Photography. His books with Aperture include Violent Legacies (1992), On the Beach (2007), Destroy This Memory (2010), Petrochemical America (with Kate Orff, 2012), Golden Gate (2012), The Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings (2015), and Border Cantos (with Guillermo Galindo, 2016).

Review:

"Haunting is one way to describe page-after-page of what appear to be messages from ghosts. But the captionless images are also downright sad, infuriating - in some cases, darkly humorous." --NPR's The Picture Show, Claire O'Neill, 17-Aug-10

"'Destroy This Memory' is a raw testament, shot between October and December 2005, just after the waters began to recede but the emotions had certainly not. Without captions or contextual introduction to detract from the potency of the photographs themselves, the book is a powerful document allowing survivors to speak eloquently for themselves - even in absentia. New Orleans, its essence, doesn't just permeate these images; it's a force that's palpable and fully present tense." --Los Angeles Times, Lynell George, 5-Sept-10

"Richard Misrach's new Destroy This Memory...will ruin your day and it will make it better. It demonstrates that post-Katrina books and photographic projects should not be lumped together as one thing. Consider Misrach's book an affirmation that artists can bring strikingly different, equally valuable points-of-view to the same subject and that their contributions to story-telling and creating our collective memory are every bit as valuable as journalism or oral history." --ARTINFO.com, Tyler Green, 8-Sept-10

"Among the many documentary records of Katrina's devastation, Misrach's images form a distinct and provocative subcategory...The photos--which are entirely devoid of people--don't just provide the now-familiar account of ruined homes and strewn debris, but also give pungent, poetic voice to the absent inhabitants." --Book Forum, Albert Mobilio, Sept/Oct/Nov-10
