My inspiration for this shoot came from spending an evening at a bar called The Big Easy. Only slightly like the real New Orleans, I was recalling the allure of The Big Easy had for me in my twenties through the filter of my romanticizing of the adventures I would no doubt have. After a summer of sweating and waiting tables, New Orleans lost any luster for me and I went home. But my evening at The Big Easy had me thinking of young women at the turn of the century with the same romantic ideas I had while the reality usually led to prostitution and destitution. And I imagined one young woman writing letters home to her mother painting a fiercely different picture as to not shame the family—though the writing on the wall is clear—a dire mistake had been made.
