Cancer Alley – New York and Louisiana

Cancer Alley – Louisiana and New York is a sad and tragic reflection on our desire for financial comfort and success at the expense of personal and environmental well-being. The photographs reveal the relationship between the industrial landscape of Louisiana, where beauty and devastation collide along the Mississippi River and chain-smoking businessmen on Wall Street in New York, where one would expect the rewards of success to reflect the good life. The photographs were made from 1993 – 1995.
