Story / Comments
“All Aboard combines a documentary photograph of New Orleanians boarding a school bus to escape Katrina’s rising waters with Michelangelo’s frescoe of ‘The Flood’, painted in 1510 for the Sistine Chapel. Both narratives describe the fall or failure of a civilization and simultaneously celebrate individual acts of heroism and humanity.”
