“I’m looking for people who are surprising – heartbreaking – or beautiful in a terrifying way. Beauty that might scare you to death until you acknowledge it as part of yourself.”
– Richard Avedon

In the Spring of 1990 I first visited the state of Louisiana, lesser known as The Child of the Mississippi. There is an unwavering spirit in this state of diverse backgrounds and cultures that has captivated me ever since. I often feel the sense of being lost in time in this state that is unlike any other I have visited.

As always, I challenge myself to keep my images sincere and honest in order to pay respect to my subjects and their way of life.  Also, through the process of capturing these unique environments and people, I learn more about myself and my relationship to the world.

I am proud to present these images affirming Louisiana is an integral part of our national identity. – Kevin Greenblat
