Rockport is an account of the weeks and months after Hurricane Harvey swept through the community of Rockport, Texas and the surrounding area. On its surface, this group of photographs takes the form of a conventional photo essay, but it preserves what might otherwise be considered the outtakes or rejects, generating a retelling that is interpretive and diaristic as much as it is documentary. The photographs explore seeing and perceiving disaster, both the impulse to shield one's eyes from what is overwhelming and the strain to see hard realities more clearly.
