Flickr User Nolareno is a Richard Nickel of Antedeluvian New Orleans


Valence St. Church May 7th (16), originally uploaded by nolareno.

I have tracked the photos of Nolareno, a Flickr user, for a few months now. They are stunning, mundane documents about the current architectural truth of New Orleans. Nolareno photographs the demolition of supermarkets, shoots wonderful snips of architectural detail, and otherwise walks and snaps as the city moves on. With very little commentary but great location detail, we see the state of 3401-05 St. Claude St., 1330 Simon Bolivar St., and 1208-12 Orthea Castle Haley Blvd. It’s not all bleak, but it’s all true. A fine descendant of Chicago’s Richard Nickel.
