Poignant Heartache April 7 2008
By Literary Man - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A beautiful and compelling portraiture of sorrow and loss, and the ravages of time frozen, captured in a memory.
Absolutely amazing photos Nov. 17 2012

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I recently saw Dan Burkholder at a wonderful 3 day workshop sponsored by the Center for Photographic Art. I was completely blown away by his work, and immediately went home and ordered this book. These are some of the most powerful photos I've seen by any contemporary photographer! He shared with us how he had to work with the limited natural light inside of these abandoned buildings, sometimes doing 16 min. exposures in dark, moldy places with floors that were rotted and mushy. Each photo ends up looking like a painting, with such powerful stories that you can feel the history and the tragedy of Katrina. Would recommend this more than any book I've ever bought.
Excellent Service and A Memorable Book Jan. 18 2011

The vendor responded immediately to the order and shipped promptly. I would definitely recommend this vendor and will return to his site again. The gently used book in this order is in excellent condition. It was a gift to a friend who is delighted with this memorable photography volume. The book is alive with heartbreaking images of loss and ruin filmed to producing an eerie beauty. It also triggers lingering thoughts of people who lived intimately in these settings.

I wish I could afford this book but did not purchase. I have seen the actual images used in this book. They are superb photographs. If you can afford this book purchase it.
Very, very special Aug. 4 2010
By Jack Kennealy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Dan Burkholder's use of HDR digital image processing is, to me, the most effective and dramatic use of HDR that I have ever seen - and I've seen a lot. In addition, Dan's selection of scenes to shoot shows immense sensitivity to the deeply personal losses experienced by people there in the wake of Katrina. This is an extraordinary book that will easily stand the test of time and forever be an outstanding record of how countless lives were so sadly trashed by Katrina.
