Dead Lost or Displaced (9781608010073)
"I conceptualized and created this series to document the lives of Louisiana natives mostly in and around New Orleans and Baton Rouge. It never occurred to me that this series would become my memorial so to speak to the innocent, who either are dead, lost or displaced due to the events that occurred after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans.
