Michael P. Smith Fund For Documentary Photography 2012 Finalist David Armentor The Sugar Mill Sessions

Project Summary: 'The Sugar Mill Sessions' focuses on sugar production in Southwest Louisiana. It attempts to give a localized, contemporary view of the industry by documenting harvest seasons of 3 local mills: Cajun Co-op, Louisiana Sugar Cane Co-op and Enterprise, as well as by shadowing the Judices, a family of farmers whose roots are buried 7 generations deep in this industry.
