strong work Gary. and The Full Monte (including your story) are keen examples of what I was writing Sion about in an earlier thread: that photojournalism is not confined to wire servie/magazines/newspapers, but that the net might serve as an equally compelling distribution. The pics are strong too. :)).cheers, Bob

Gary- there was one photograph of a skinny black woman in a wheelchair that you have up on that site- she is framed by a hand rail and is slouched to the right, and i think it’s the same as the one of her with a blanket over her in front of the superdome posted on the NO picayune site. you gave so much more context to this woman than most photographs of her, and your picture is powerful. im in grad school at univer. of missouri for photoj and i was born and raised in new orleans. i grew up in shacks, bouncing around from one dump to another. there was no job market and we were always getting robbed. when i graduated highschool i left my family and hadn’t lived with them until the hurricane hit and they moved in with me.
you said in your post: “I had heard many great things about this city of acceptance, of music, of gluttony, of freedom, of religion, and now of the lost and the found.” i had no freedom in that city. as your images show there is no freedom for the poor in that city. there is more accurate violence and revolt in your photographs than i have seen in the media. gary, thanks, right on. you might like the film “always for pleasure” made in the seventies by les blank: www.lesblank.com/more/AlwaysForPleasure.html
