Photographer's Note

Al sud de l'estat de Mississippi hi és aquesta ciutat, Biloxi. Una ciutat una mica estranya pels europeus, o com a mínim a mi m'ho va semblar, però que amaga racons extraordinaris com aquest, al ben mig de la seva platja. Allà vam trobar un grup d'ex-soldats que combinaven el seu temps lliure entre llençar ferradures a un pal clavat a la sorra de la pròpia platja, beure cervesa i anar als banys químics a descarregar-la.


Biloxi is a city in Harrison County, Mississippi. The 2010 United States Census recorded the population as 44,054. Along with the adjoining city of Gulfport, Biloxi is a county seat of Harrison County.

The city is part of the Gulfport-Biloxi metropolitan area and the Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula, Mississippi Combined Statistical Area. Pre-Katrina, Biloxi was the third largest city in Mississippi behind Jackson and Gulfport; with its population losses following that storm, it was passed by Hattiesburg and Southaven, so Biloxi is now ranked fifth in the state.

The beachfront of Biloxi lies directly on the Mississippi Sound, with barrier islands scattered off the coast and into the Gulf of Mexico. Keesler Air Force Base lies within the city and is home to the 81st Training Wing and the 403d Wing of the U.S. Air Force Reserve. (Wikipedia)
