Phantom Winds: A Mystic Hymn of Louisiana
We started this project on a Christmas Day. Unbelievably, it snowed. The grayness of the light was the perfect beginning. Our intention for this work was to portray South Louisiana as we felt it, a layered landscape of mystery and shadows.
So “Phantom Winds” was born. It is a book project (and exhibition) that combines the lushly descriptive writings of Lafcadio Hearn, a New Orleans writer from the 1870’s, with our photographs. These photographs have a moody poetic feel that describe the complex beauty and sensuality of these areas and our love for them.
The work is not meant to be a literal record but rather a look into a subliminal, internal, living, breathing land.
