Yardwork in the Lower 9th.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
20 August 2006 - New Orleans - Louisiana. Lower 9th ward. Jerome Benjamin (with weed-eater) and Louis Banks (mower) work to reign in the weeds at an abandoned Lower 9th ward property with flood grime thick on the windows, thick on everything that belongs to an elderly lady the men know as 'Grandma.' Everyone knew 'Grandma,' they say. Her real grandson was supposed to come by and get the gutted home ready for sale. He never showed up. The neighbourhood is deserted. It is hard to imagine anyone living here ever again.
