Quiet Zone

(A sign in an abandoned school library in New Orleans)<br />
<br />
Images were made in New Orleans in 2006, six months after Katrina, in abandoned houses, schools and apartments in the Little Woods, Lower Ninth Ward, and St Claude neighborhoods. Students left classrooms on Friday, August 26, 2005, and never returned. Homes were vacated with stunning rapidity. Mold and government apathy obliterate evidence of the lives left behind.
