Jeremiah Ariaz is an associate professor at Louisiana State University. Louisiana Trail Riders is currently on view at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. A monograph of the work is forthcoming from UL Press. Additional information can be found at LouisianaTrailRiders.com.
Jeremiah Ariaz documents the longstanding tradition of black trail-riding clubs among Creole communities in South Louisiana, drawing from scenes of their rides to “depict joy, pride, and familial intimacy, particularly between fathers and sons who are taught to care for and ride horses from an early age.”
