New Orleans photographer Jennifer Shaw has published “Hurricane Story,” a memoir composed of short prose and color photographs.

Shaw's signature images, taken with a toy Holga camera, tell the story of her evacuation from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the birth of her first son, the pressures of living in a post-disaster environment, and her family’s return to New Orleans.

The clothbound, hardcover book includes an introduction by Rob Walker, author of "Letters from New Orleans" and former "Consumed" columnist for The New York Times Magazine.
