Dispatch 13: Post / Stress

Words and Photography MICHAEL TUCKER

Broken concrete is scattered across the old pre-stress - where the bulk of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the longest bridge over water, was once prepared for construction. The lot sits behind the scenic Sunset Point, a resting home for gators, fishermen, and signs warning of manatee. The ground is hard but fertile, and was once home to large graffitied concrete structures. Since knocked down, yesteryear's teenage playground now lays waste with little foot traffic - another suburban renewal project left unattended.

Michael Tucker is a Louisiana-based photographer and the founder of social content boutique Post Parlor. His work will be seen in our upcoming Wonder South Journal Issue no. 2: CREATION.
