Post Katrina New Orleans 2005-2007



A Matter of Faith


This year long project is a study of churches in New Orleans 9th ward. These churches were the moral backbone of a tough and troubled neighborhood, and with Katrina, all were damaged in some form or another. Church culture was part of the fabric of the society, and my portfolio hopes to track the rebuilding of that very important part of life in the 9th ward. This is a list of the churches I've been photographing since November 2005
