• Walk through the sinister abandoned amusement park Jazzland
In August 2005, the world watched in horror as the hurricane "Katrina" pulled down everything in its path in Louisiana, causing the system levees in New Orleans could not stand it, and 80% of the city was flooded with muddy water. Jason Andrew was one of the millions of people priniknuvshih then to TV screens. According to the TV broadcast, as the inhabitants of New Orleans waited for help on the roofs of their flooded homes, abandoned and trapped.
Two years later, Jason was in a flooded New Orleans amusement park, which at that time very few people knew.
Jason Goes to New Orleans, with the intention to shoot people, solitude and apocalyptic scenes, but among other things found Jazzland, once thriving amusement park.
Jazzland is totally different from other neighborhoods of New Orleans. This place is so impressed by the photographer that he decided to devote his photo project.
"Chill" - described the finding in this wonderful place an American photographer. "The stores still have souvenirs and stuffed toys, eyes that follow you, like ghosts from the past."
It's all dirt and mold, toys look like someone's forgotten childhood memories.
The fact that this "swag" was left to Jason gave the feeling that the park is not subjected to flooding, and the radiation impact, the scene is almost like a scene from Pripyat.
The park remains intact, as if ready to open for children in one of the warm summer days that will never come.
However, the local area is slowly but surely captures the Louisiana swamp.
The park, which was once filled with laughter and joy, is now heard only the crickets and the wind whistling.
Jazzland - trail hurricane "Katrina" and a symbol of what the Americans were unable to recover from the natural disaster.
