Overview

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 Kerri McCaffety counts among her accolades the 1999 gold Lowell Thomas Award from the Society of American Travel Writers and the 1998 Book of the Year award from the New Orleans Gulf South Booksellers Association. Ms. McCaffety studied at Tulane University, where she earned a degree in anthropology with a concentration in ethnographic documentary. Her writing and photojournalism have appeared in many publications, including Southern Accents, The Oxford American, Historic Traveler, Town and Country, and Travel Leisure.
