These are photographs taken in the months after hurricane Katrina ravaged the New Orleans area. It's taken me ten years to complete these edits. These are primarily from Arabi and the Gentilly area of New Orleans. Some are very personal to me - my Grandmother's home, homes of friends, and the house in which I grew up. Most of these structures were completely submerged. When these were taken, the flood waters were long gone. All that was left were crushed dreams and moldy memories ... and painted messages to anyone who cared.
My grandparent's house is number 18 with the wrought iron peacock my great uncle made in the 1950s seen in the foreground:) The house still stands:)
The guestbook is empty.
