For more than 20 years I have studied New Orleans through the lens of my camera. During that time, I have learned to appreciate her nuances, forgive her faults, relish the beauty of her architecture, savor the uniqueness of her culinary and musical heritage. With each click of the camera I treasure this place a little more. These are my thoughts in words and pictures.

Hurricane Ida and Operation Photo Rescue

Hurricane Ida, New Orleans photographer

The devastation Hurricane Ida brought to Louisiana is genuinely heartbreaking.  Sometimes my job as a photographer is just to listen and sometimes really see the pieces of lives scattered on the ground. The loss of family photographs is a tragedy because it erases the memory and the evidence of love and lives well-lived. In addition, it takes away the opportunity to teach the next generation about family history. That is why I am getting involved with Operation Photo Rescue: a non-profit that creates digital copies of damaged photos restored by volunteer digital restoration experts.  The finished products are sent back to their owners. And that is priceless!
