I spent the last week of May visiting my good friend Jelena Gonzalez in New Orleans, Louisiana.
I loved exploring the history of the French Quarter, the Mississippi River and Louisiana. One of the most interesting things was learning about how New Orleans and the surrounding area is still reeling from the effects of Katrina in 2005. More than 10 years later the effects of the hurricanes play an integral part in the art and community you see. Art of the City: Postmodern to Post-Katrina, an art exhibit put on by The Historic New Orleans Collection explored this in depth.
Otherwise, it was great to catch up with an old friend and see the city of New Orleans through her eyes. Here is a collection of photography from my time in the Big Easy.
