Blood, Sweat and Tears is a selection of poignant images by photographer Aubrey Edwards, in which she visited New Orleans a year after Katrina, where the streets were still strewn with debris. Aubrey says of the project:
The purpose of this project is threefold. First, to give residents who lost valuable family photos and albums new memories and photos to cherish. Second, to document a momentous period in American history. Third, to record the stories and celebrate the communities, families and faces of New Orleanians as they begin to restore life to how it was before the storm. Behind each of these images there is a tale of hope, strength, tenacity and pain...I would like the faces to simply speak for themselves.The resulting images speak volumes about the overwhelming devestation wrought by this calamity and the ability of the human spirit to move above and beyond it.
