The photograph, Berry Bay, December 2001, is from a fifteen year documentary project, Duck Blinds: Louisiana. The project is comprised of roughly 100 photographs of handmade duck blinds along the Calcasieu River and its adjoining bays and bayous. All the photographs were made with a 6×7 film camera, a Mamiya 7, and were taken while standing on the bow of a small boat. The use of native plant materials, such as palmetto leaves and Spanish moss, are utilized to camouflage the structures. I was drawn to photograph the blinds, a form of vernacular architecture, by their uniqueness. In the spring of 2012, a selection of the images was exhibited at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.—Nell Campbell
