Sunday walk in the “rich” part of the Lower Ninth Ward…

Before I ran into Spike Lee filming his sequel documentary on the rebirth of New Orleans this past Sunday, I hanged out in Brad Pitt’s & Angelina Jolie’s neighborhood, or, at least the one area of the Lower Ninth Ward that the two Hollywood stars are helping rebuilding.

The feeling was as if I were walking downtown in Miami. The houses looked a little inappropriate for the Deep South, but stylist for sure! Now, let’s just hope these homes will be as efficient as the look and, let’s make our wish for this upcoming Spring to be that many more New Orleans citizens will be having their first Easter dinner with a brand new roof over their heads, no matter which shape (Hollywood-looks or plain cookie cutter).

These photos you see here are part of a bigger project I am working on that I have, most recently, named “The Beauty and The Beast” and that will portrait different reconstruction efforts in preparation for the August 25 fifth-year Katrina anniversary. Consider this idea a part of my falling in love with the Crescent City and a tribute to the thousands who lost it all in a heartbeat and to the ones who volunteered to give them a new home back out of the goodness of their own heart.
