Making Their Mark label text:
Willie Birch is native to New Orleans, and much of his photographs and collages depict daily life in his hometown. This print, created four years after Hurricane Katrina, depicts multiple versions of what are either bananas or plantains against a backdrop of the every day. - Pauline Miller, ICP Intern, Summer 2014
