In August 2006, Bill Klingensmith embarked on a new phase of a creative effort he began in 2005, DriveProject ‘05, which involved shooting thousands of photos from his car window while driving across the country. His original intent was to transform a long automobile journey into a powerful visual experience by condensing the collected images into an interactive presentation on the Internet. These projects can be viewed in the section below.
DRIVE PROJECT :: NEW ORLEANS
REMEMBERING NEW ORLEANS -
10th ANNIVERSARY OF HURRICANE KATRINA
For this project, a drive through the city of New Orleans, Klingensmith advanced his technique and equipment in order to create a new and intimate experience for the viewer. He wanted to drive through the neighborhoods of New Orleans and somehow capture images that would reflect the current state of recovery efforts in the area one year after Hurricane Katrina.
