Alexis Pazoumian - Faubourg Treme

Publisher Andre Frere Editions

ISBN 9791092265651

Idea Code 17549

Alexis Pazoumian sees many similarities between Louisiana and his native Armenia. Whether they have been victims of natural disasters or crimes against humanity, history has afflicted these populations relentlessly, yet these tragedies have not affected their fighting spirit, their vital energy. Ten years after Hurricane Katrina ravished New Orleans, Pazoumian began a project to photograph its citizens. There he found that music is a part of everyone’s daily life, and the key to reconstruction. From churchgoers and brass bands, to Mardi Gras costumes and the serene glow of bars late at night, he offers a portrait of this city’s soul, resilient despite the hostility of life.
