New Orleans

Posted by Brittany M. Powell (Creator)

Hello, and happy new year!

I've just returned from a wonderfully productive and incredibly inspiring trip to New Orleans shooting for the Debt Project.  I photographed nine amazing subjects and am really pleased with the pictures and interviews I got on the trip!  Folks in New Orleans are incredibly generous, thoughtful and had such an interesting perspective about debt and materiality, filtered through the lens of living in a city that has undergone one of the biggest rebuilding processes in history.  

Thanks again to everyone for their support in this project.  I was injured from an accident in December, so I am definitely behind in working on rewards, but not to worry, I will be chipping away at getting those out to everyone asap.  To those of you who have print rewards from the project specifically, I will be sending out surveys to find out which portrait you'd like a print of.  You have the option of waiting until shooting for the project is finished as well.  Those of you with rewards from my commercial site, please answer the surveys if you haven't already, and those should be out for delivery within the next month or so.  

I'll keep you updated as to when New Orleans subjects will be up on the website!  I'll be shooting in the Boston/Maine and possibly Vermont areas Feb 6-10th if anyone knows anyone who might benefit from participating, please send them my way.  Additionally I'll have some limited time to shoot subjects in NYC the 11th-15th as well.  

Thanks and wishing everyone a wonderful first month of 2015!
