Dickerson essay offers unique look at post-K NOLA

Unique Katrinaversary Reading and Imagery Note: Even if you have long since grown weary of looking at Katrina-related disaster photography and related stories, NOPA member Nell Dickerson’s post-Katrina recollections and gallery at NOLA Defender, “The Calm After,” should be more than worth a look.

In the essay and the gallery, Dickerson focuses squarely on people and a bit of architectural history in a November 2006 walk through the French Quarter and Treme, as well as a search for Perseverance Hall.

Dickerson, an architect as well as a photographer, conducted building assessments for the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in 2005, after Katrina.
