I’ve been working on this project sort of sporadically over the last few years, adding on to it each time I go home for a visit. Now I’m finally making some real progress because I’ve gone from random pictures that may work to a very focused goal.
My vision is to create a collection of images of New Orleans that show the parts of the city that have stood the test of time. Things that are inherently “New Orleans” and always will be. There is so much that is unique to the city, and there are just as many misconceptions about it. Since moving to Maryland, I’ve discovered that the stereotypes are believed, and the city’s image is one of sin and hedonism, not one of arts, culture, and history.
I hope to use this collection as a way to show what is good and true about the heart of the Crescent City.
