About New Orleans & le Sud de la Louisiane:
It’s above all a book of current images, which show the surprising landscapes and reveal the great diversity of origins and cultures of the inhabitants of Louisiana. It bears witness to their determination faced with natural elements and their strength to always rebuild. It shares their sense of hospitality and celebration and explains their philosophy of « letting the good times roll. »
