Matthew White: “The End of the Great River: Photographs of the Lower Mississippi River Delta “


This exhibit features fine art landscape images of the Mississippi River Delta, from Port Sulphur in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana south to the end of the three passes that drain the river into the Gulf of Mexico — Pass a Loutre; South Pass; and Southwest Pass. This delta, full of history, culture, and industry, is sparsely populated and rarely seen in detail by outsiders, but is a landscape of vast, simplistic beauty. Photography for this project began in the spring of 2000, made on both black and white film and digital color, continuing to the present day.
