New Orleans
Neighborhood Portraits


"(to come)." (from The New Orleans Data Center)

[Interview texts in preparation]

Mr. Bud (right) and friend at his Family Barber Shop

Mr. Bud (left barber) and his father in a photo from an earlier time.
Mr. Bud's son says the customer on the right was hiding his face because he was Mafia!

Note. These photo portraits cannot represent the whole range of views in a neighborhood. My survey research tries to do that (see my home page). But I think that these photo portraits express views that are widespread in a neighborhood. This is due to the methodology. Qualitative work like these photo pages has more depth, while quantitative work like surveys has more breadth. Both are valuable, and if you want to know more about a neighborhood, you should try to learn about both.
