33x29, Found photos, board, blanket, gaffer's tape, mounting hardware, 2011

In June, 2011 I encountered a junk shop in New Orleans that had a large board of dated African American family photos affixed to it. According to the shop, it was salvaged post-Katrina, and in its lifetime had been rented to various media production companies shooting in New Orleans as a prop, including the HBO show Treme. I bought the board, the shop wrapped and taped it up, and the collection of images is presented as it left the merchants arms, installed directly onto the wall.
