For those who find themselves in NOLA for the anniversary, Chris Usher will be having a book launching party for his three year long photographic project “One of Us,” following victims of the Hurricanes and their struggles to get back on their feet. The launch party will be Friday August 29th from 6pm-? at a bar called “Live Bait” located in the shadow of the 17th Street Canal break on 200 Hammond Hwy. in Metairie. The cajun band T’Canaille will be playing. Knowing Chris and Adrienne, it will be a party of epic proportions!
All the proceeds from the book go to help the victims. ALL OF IT. Kodak and Usher aren’t making money off this. So it truly is a humanitarian project. See Chris’ interview at http://www.kodak.com/US/en/corp/pressCenter/newPodcast/podcastPro.jhtml
