In Louisiana, the threat of hurricanes arrives annually, but the storm around the poorest people is felt daily. I think of permanent vigilance, of recovery, and the constant need to start over. Memories that never have time to heal. Louisiana is one of the poorest states with the highest number of imprisoned and lot of violens and crime. Part of this is directly related to hurricanes, but much based a long period of segregation. Hurricane Season is a metaphor for the fear of the unknown, to live on the border with poverty and racial tension. With a background in this hard life the pictures also shows everyday life in extreme situations,  and how they adapt to the circumstances. Pictures are vibrant and humid. There is a feeling of calm, the eye of the storm.
