The Edge


Country road in New Orleans

New Orleans.

It’s not quite what you think. Is it?

When you get out in the far reaches of the 9th Ward, the city turns into country and back again.

I made this picture from the levee at the Industrial Canal. This is the levee that broke and flooded the Lower 9th Ward. But this is closer to the lake. This section didn’t break. This place looks like what it is. Farm land. It is under sea level. It was better used as small truck farms.

New Orleans. Winter 2015.
