Enigmatic Stream Indus tr ial Landscapes of the Lower Mississippi River A new book and exhibition from The Historic New Orleans Collection featuring the photography of Richard Sexton Exhibition now on view at 520 Royal Street Book available for purchase at www.hnoc.org/shop As it churns towards its terminus in southeastern Louisiana, the Mississippi River becomes a wide, muddy superhighway of activity, matched in might only by the megastructures of heavy industry that line its banks. For two decades, photographer and author Richard Sexton has explored the complicated region, documenting our quintessentially American conundrum of trying to exploit the river's potential while allowing life to flourish. Intrigued by the juxtapositions of innovation and decay, the commercial and the residential, the manmade and the natural, Sexton eloquently captures the contrasting qualities of these landscapes in his latest collection.
