Have a little wine with me, and experience a selection of photo images unlike anything you will see at any of the PhotoNOLA 2021 exhibitions. As an Ecuadorian-born artist, it’s my duty to actually tell the story that nobody else dares to speak in this city. Post-Katrina New Orleans was rebuilt by thousands of Latin American immigrant reconstruction workers, and because many were undocumented, they experienced some of the most brutal oppression that you cannot even imagine.
