The news media has a notoriously short attention span. A disaster like Hurricane Katrina flattens a large slice of the Gulf Coast, the networks scour the minutiae of the wreckage for stories down to the plight of the homeless mold spore and, after a few dozen news cycles, coverage dwindles to an informational trickle. Photographer Rebecca Ward of the Savannah College of Art and Design refreshes the collective memory with "Katrina: 9 Months Later," a photo exhibition capturing the uncorrected damage to homes in New Orleans and Gulfport, Miss. With no people and the dissolving debris of private life, these images could have been taken days later. The photos — many straightforward interiors, the walls marked by a water line and ominous band of black mold — become a time capsule of devastation. The show opens at 4 N. 18th St. Friday, Aug. 4, 6-10 p.m. and continues Aug. 5-6, noon-5 p.m. 240-4823. S
