No. 3098, Madison Parish, LA

Photos of Madison Parish, LA, which is ranked by the New York Times among the fifty hardest places to live in America.

I have a thing for abandoned buildings– for me, they raise fascinating questions about what we consider important enough to preserve, and what we leave behind. As I entered Tallulah on US Hwy 80, the old Tallulah High School (built in 1927, abandoned since the early 2000s) loomed large, and I had to stop. Though the school has been defunct for over a decade, the city still hangs wreaths over its doors and windows.
