These fantastical, one could say phantasmagorical, images of New Orleans as taken by Frank Relle are post-Katrina documents of what’s been left behind, abandoned, and in some cases simply overgrown in Relle’s hometown.

I’ll be visiting New Orleans sometime in early January and I’m psyched to see this city, as unfortunate as the situation is – although I don’t think I’ll quite have the lenses embedded into my eyes that Relle sees the world through. (I think there are things you can ingest to achieve these effects however)
