"New Orleans has a melancholy beauty that defies logic and transcends time." - David G. Spielman, from "The Katrina Decade. Images of an Altered City"
During my trip to New Orleans, I had a chance to watch life, capture candid moments and meet with a lot of amazing people who's portraits and photographs you will see in this New Orleans Faces gallery.
One of these people is an amazing photographer - David Spielman, who is among first photographers who captured post-Katrina New Orleans and effects of the hurricane on the city' architecture and neighborhoods.
I was so lucky that not only did I purchase a beautiful book full of master's photographs but was also honored to talk to him and get the book signed! To someone who recently started this journey of documenting life, this means a lot.
