Hurricane Katrina 2nd Anniversary.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
29 August 2007. Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The Californian women of 'Indigo Eyes' provide a bit of relief from the sadness. The women play music and sign religious songs in the mostly deserted, empty remains of the decimated Lower 9th Ward. They stopped and wandered in the gutted Mt Carmel Church. The area remains mostly abandoned and overgrown, ghostly reminders of lives that once were. President Bush came to town and claimed he could be proud of what local and federal government have achieved in the city. Yet two years after the storm, it is quite clear that local and federal government are failing and have a great deal to do to live up their promises.
