Irish Channel, New Orleans is a series I made between 2010-12 while living in that neighborhood.

The process of making this series was driven by my interest in working collaboratively with the people that lived in the Irish Channel and doing my best to document the neighborhood through the experiences of the community members.

I walked around the neighborhood and asked people what places in the neighborhood I should photograph and why these places were significant, either to them, or to the neighborhood. Each of the resulting images was derived from hundreds of photographs that I took over the course of a single session. This visual tool is meant to elicit a sense of dreaminess and the accumulation of experiences that create a sense of place.
