National Geographic NYtimes

I woke up early and stayed out late, drove up the streets and floated down the bayous. The past ten years we've watched how slow and fast changes make history.  I'm always excited to return home with visual records that document Louisiana, a place that continues to bewilder, enchant and inspire me.  I'm thankful to share these photographs of home with so many eyes in two of the most important visual publications of our time.
