Isle de Jean Charles '16
« on: July 16, 2021, 10:32:54 am »

A small island in the marsh southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana where Gulf Coast Indians have lived peacefully and prosperously for 200 years. But 50 years of destruction caused mainly by the oil and gas industry has left the Island only 5% of it's original size. Almost all the people have had to leave.

A fine shot, even if it doesn't forcefully portray the history.

Yes, from that pleasant shot, who would imagine the sad story of the place...

Eric and Francois,
Thank you both for your comments.
I think you're both pointing out one of the limits of photography: What the viewer sees, if it's a single image, has little or no context.
To address  this I'm making a foto-essay of the Island and will include this one. Hopefully then it's meaning will come across.
Thanks again.
