"Marie-Dominique Verdier's NEW ORLEANS WALLS: STILL STANDING is a one-of-a-kind storybook.
A collection of lovingly composed photo portraits and biographical sketches of a broad cross-section of this unique city's residents . . .
this book speaks eloquently to the resilience and optimism that typify the culture and citizens of ‘The Big Easy'."

-Viggo Mortensen, actor, poet, musician, photographer and painter, 2010.

 

"Beautiful and interesting. The faces tell stories that Marie-Dominique's lens elicited,
telling both the personal tales of the people who sat for her, and the story of our sad and wonderful city."

- Andrei Codrescu, poet, novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and commentator for NPR, 2010.

 

"You or I would look at a wall and see brick or wood or plaster. Marie-Dominique sees life.
How she captures the emotion and heart of her subject is the gift she gives us."

- Angela Hill, WWL-TV anchor, inductee of the New Orleans Broadcasting Hall of Fame, 2010.

 

"Great book"
- Drew Brees, August 2012.

 

"Verdier’s book is a testament to New Orleans’ diversity and uniqueness."
- New Orleans Magazine, December 2012.
