Travel: The Fringe Quarter is an ongoing photo project detailing the proximity of tourists to the homeless, the unemployed and the underemployed in one of America’s great tourist destinations — New Orleans. Note that some of these pictures originally appeared in Lunch Ticket in Fall 2017.
BIO: Jay Waters walked away from a good job in order to teach in college and do other things, including photography. Old enough to know better. Yearns to be a well-travelled Southerner. Believes that a photo should be, as much as possible, just the coincidence of life and camera. Inspired equally by Edward Hopper, Ansel Adams, Randy Newman and Gordon Parks.
