On one of my last projects in New Orleans I had a beer one night with location scout, Aaron Dunsay. While we talked, he told me that if I were to drive a half hour and then take a boat for another half hour, I would come across these fishing shacks you can only get to by boat.
Itâ€™s exactly the kind of thing â€“ utterly distinctive Â â€“ that I canâ€™t resist. I was all in.
So I stayed an extra day in Louisiana and hired a waterman, from a long line of watermen, with a boat to take me out. I was so excited to have had this day and experience, to spend a little time capturing this somewhat surreal water world in person and with my camera. Not too many places are as unique as this one, places that make you wonder â€œam I seeing what I think Iâ€™m seeing?â€ I ran with that, and with the sense of magic of the bayou to create this image â€“ are you seeing what you think youâ€™re seeing?
