Apocalypse at the Hard Rock



On October 12, 2019 the Hard Rock Hotel being built in New Orleans collapsed, killing a number of construction workers as it fell. This was my first opportunity to get within a block or two of the disaster and finally catch a few images. Its a staggering sight up close. A month after the collapse there are still bodies lost in the rubble and the superstructure looks like it could collapse completely at any moment. New Orleans has had its fair share of disasters over the years. It didn't need another one. But over time it will become a part of the mythos of this city. In years to come there will be stories of ghosts that guard the corner and locals will tell tales of this fall of this giant. We spin stories from disasters all the time. Its one of the charms of this strange city on the banks of the Mississippi River.
