gulfport, mississippi - september 2005

site description

gulfport is an affluent resort town just to the west of biloxi. there i photographed atop of the remains of decadence. the entire stretch of coast here was inaccessible to the public, blocked off by reams of barbed wire and check points with state troopers. locals with oversized suv's pressed for access to survey the remains and sift through their rubble. some, underestimating the carnage had even arrived with u-hauls prepared to transport that which had remained intact. there was little left.

the commercial junket was similarly devastated. miles of beach-side fast-food outlets had been swallowed into the sea with only their high sign posts left behind like frail chicken bones.
