New Orleans Photo Alliance

This collection of photographs and artist statement are excerpted from my recently published book, Tide Lines: A Photographic Record of Louisiana’s Disappearing Coast, (2023. Jackson, MS: University Press of Mississippi). I have spent nine years photographing the beauty, complexity, and destruction of South Louisiana from a powered paraglider. Once formed by sediment deposited by the Mississippi River, Louisiana is now rapidly eroding. Over the past eighty years, our coast has lost two thousand square miles of wetlands in its transition back to open water.

The New Orleans Photo Alliance and wildly popular local Instagram @lookatthisfuckinstreet announce Look at This  F**kin Street, a juried digital exhibition highlighting the spirit that emerges from dysfunctional urban infrastructure.

Look at This F**kin’ Street

The Laid Table is a very personal meditation on beauty, fecundity, fragility and the inevitable march of time. Each image is staged as it appears in the image, no post production manipulation is used.
