Jennifer Shaw - Portfolio 1: Relics

Screen Door Jennifer Shaw... Screen Door (2002, Split toned silver gelatin print, Edition: 25). From Jennifer Shaw - Portfolio 1: Relics at Meter Gallery. "...The Tchoupitoulas Street corridor in New Orleans is an urban limbo - a five-mile stretch along the Mississippi that is strewn with both relics of industry past and hints of gentrification to come. The boarded-up screen doors and teetering piles of planks in Jennifer Shaw's photographs might not seem iconic to the casual passerby, but her intimate portraits embellish them with meaning."
