Amazing Damaged Work

Amazing Damaged Work
June 21, 2012 Jon Armstrong

Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick suffered a devasting loss of their archives in the Katrina/levee aftermath. But they’ve turned it around and created new work from damaged negatives. And it is stunning work both visually and metaphorically:

“As the city recovered, so too did their work. Taking negatives from this damaged collection, Calhoun and McCormick have made a new body of work that literally captures the moment when the levees broke.”
