‘Flood’ is an exhibition of photographic still and moving images taken in New Orleans following hurricane Katrina.

Through the lens of a camera Janene Knox and Bill Poznanski present an examination of graffiti signs as syntax between the state authorities and local residents. Angela and Peter Becnel capture the deluge of the flood.

Accompanied by a floor talk and screening of the relatedaward winning documentary feature film ‘A Reason to Stay’: “The story of a flooded corner of New Orleans Mid City neighbourhood following Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath. Captured on camcorder in never-before-seen footage, neighbours assist each other with compassion and humour in the face of extreme adversity.” Knox
