    LOST, Omaha is part of a series of photobooks focusing on the landscape across the globe, as seen by a group of selected contemporary photographers. Zora shot the images in a community area of Omaha, Nebraska.

    “The series focuses on the history of the North Omaha neighborhood and how its landscape was shaped by racial dynamics, first through segregation and then—once segregation was made illegal—a continuation of that oppression by the government. This was done through a process called redlining: laws that restricted Black individuals from receiving home loans, and discouraging white individuals with wealth from investing in those communities. Redlining not only made segregation legal again, but it also worked to intensify the wealth gap along racial lines. After years of disinvestment, redlined communities become economically depressed and typically stigmatized as ‘bad places’.”
