“Madonna of Desire” by Donn Young

In commemoration of the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, LSU Libraries’ Special Collections presents “After Katrina,” an exhibition on display July 21 – September 27, 2008 in Hill Memorial Library on the LSU campus. The exhibition features images salvaged from the studio of New Orleans photographer Donn Young in the weeks following the flooding accompanying Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Young’s compelling post-storm photos of the Crescent City round out the exhibition, which is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “40 Days and 40 Nights” on display at the Louisiana State Archives. Young will give a lecture open to the public in Hill during September. For more information, visit the Special Collections exhibitions page at http://www.lib.lsu.edu/special/exhibits/index.html.
