Montreal-born Robert Polidori has been a staff photographer at The New Yorker for more than 10 years. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Polidori photographed the damage done to the Big Easy and 18 of his finest photographs were exhibited earlier this year at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA). This photograph above shows museum patrons taking in the sombre photos that detail some of the hardship endured by the citizens of Louisiana following the storm. The “After the Flood” exhibit has also been shown at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
While Polidori’s work is no longer on display at NOMA, you can catch numerous other works by acclaimed artists at this sensational museum in City Park, a 20-minute streetcar ride from the French Quarter.
