Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor writes on the band’s official website following his visit to New Orleans on October 28th: “The mayor’s office arranged to take us in to the lower 9th ward, a heavily-damaged section of the city not open to the public. These shots were just taken of what we happened to drive by. This goes on and on and on. The scale of utter devastation is unbelievable. We visited on a day shortly after some residents were first allowed back in, by bus, to see what’s left of their homes. We passed a few of these busses as well as search teams with cadaver dogs – 9 weeks after the storm.” Check out the pictures here.
