1 June, 2006. Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans, Louisiana. The sun sets on the first day of hurricane season. Reflected misery. Water builds up amidst piles of wreckage in the devastated Lower 9th Ward. With water mains switched back on, ruptured infrastructure permits water to seep to the surface, forming stagnant fetid pools where mosquitos breed unchecked.
