Artist Statement

Robert Polidori’s photographs have been seen by millions in publications such as Vanity Fair, Condé Nast Traveler, Newsweek, Fortune, and The New Yorker, where he was a staff photographer for over ten years. He covered the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in the days after its landfall in 2005. Virtually destroyed, the low-lying areas of the city were captured with Polidori’s large format camera, with the resulting images enduring long after the city emerged from the ruins.
