Notes

Abstract: The media’s portrayal of the city of New Orleans and its residents post-Hurricane Katrina casts an unrepresentative picture of everyday life, and does not offer residents’ perspective of their immediate surroundings. Offering residents the opportunity to create an image for themselves is important because it will contribute to a well-rounded point of view. The photographs in this project will be used to provide fellow Americans and individuals around the world a glimpse of New Orleans through the eyes of those who were directly affected.
