In late January, we continued our ongoing collaborative project of documenting the four major regional corners of Louisiana.
Armed with a medium format camera and kodak film, we headed to Venice, the most Southeastern region of our great state. Venice is an odd an enigmatic place. A landscape that is dominated by refineries and jump-off points for oil rig workers. Though, amidst all of the industrial sprawl, the wildlife and natural world still exists and thrives. Our goal was to document this fascinating relationship. How the two coexist, and adapt to each other.
With our mamiya set on a tripod, we composed within the frame as a team. The trip yielded some beautiful color negatives, as well as a detention by homeland security. DO NOT PHOTOGRAPH REFINERIES, EVEN FROM OUTSIDE THEIR GATES AND SECURITY TOWERS.
