In this season of travel, we are featuring images from Brooke White’s series DUE SOUTH, TRUE NORTH. In her photographs White contrasts landscapes from Mississippi with scenes from Maine. White’s work speaks to the experience of travel. Not only the pleasure of seeing a new landscape with its unfamiliar textures and light, but also our tendency to seek out the forms and landscapes that remind us of home.
Kael Alford’s Bottom of da Boot is a book filled with water. Many of the scenes in her photographs seem to carry the threat of being inundated at any minute. Documenting a culture that is inextricably linked to water, Alford captures the homes and communities that make up a small portion of Louisiana’s coastline, specifically the two communities of Isle de Jean Charles and Lower Pointe-aux-Chenes.
