Selected from the book by the same title, these framing-quality images evoke the multi-layered architectural history of the five-mile stretch of New Orleans that encompasses a century of architectural styles, including intricate Queen Ann houses, stately Italianate and Richardsonian mansions, and more. This is where the old and new live cheek-by-jowl, where decay is an art form, and where preservation is a way of life.
Photographer Kerri McCaffety’s work has won a tremendous outpouring of praise:
"[McCaffety’s] photography is flawless and captivating."
—Chere Cohen, Baton Rouge Advocate
"McCaffety captures architectural structures with an unobtrusive and engaging eye, remaining acutely perceptive to light and its consequence of shadow."
—Kyle Norris, ForeWord magazine
