Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans #4
Photographed May 11th, 2006. Shot during the night, these ghostly structures, on tilted axis and shifted foundations, are surrounded by debris and devastation, strange sounds, swarms of mosquitos, feral animals, towering weeds, and dead or ravaged trees. It's difficult to achieve such an effect with regard to photos of built structures inside the United States. This is because we're not used to seeing houses without lights and in such strange juxtaposition.
