A Different Perspective on the Footprint

Yesterday, I had a chance to chat with Stephen Hilger, a professor of photography at Tulane.

He has a series of photos from Lower Mid-City at his site, and some of his images do a much better job than mine of capturing the humanity of the place.  It's a less harried look than mine.

His evocative shots of the people of the place provide a different perspective, and he also homes in on the vacancy at the fringes of the neighborhood.
