Allen Chin- Katrina Photos

Allen Chin of the Gamma agency has an exhibit of black and white photos at BAG news.

They are a must stop. There is so much there...some of it viscerally distrurbing...but number 25, a simple portrait, will send chills down your spine with its echoes of Dorothea Lange.

(thanks to JaninSanFran at Happenning Here? for the link.)


  • Something about the grey tones of B&W photography that packs an emotional shock.

    25 is a stunner.

  • Haunting... No. 6 brought the biggest lump to my throat. I love hands, it stems from my childhood when my ailing grandmother would have us massage her arms and fingers to help with circulation. That woman's hands...so frail. I will have that image inside me for awhile.
