8 - Wingate 1_e7bc96c335.JPG

These houses are on Wingate Drive near Robert E. Lee, where some of the most haphazard rebuilding has taken place. The houses on this street are in varying states of repair or disrepair. \r\n\r\nOn the left, we have a empty lot where a flood-damaged house has been demolished. Next to this, we have a boarded-up house that is otherwise neglected. Behind the trees, we have a house that has been rebuilt to what it was before the storm. And, all the houses behind it are new elevated structures that have been raised and could survive a catastrophic flood. \r\n\r\n\r\nThis image is part of a series titled Four Years After.
