Overview

World Premiere
Louisiana’s wetlands are disappearing. Perhaps no one who knows that better than Ben Dapp, a photographer who’s completed hundreds of aerial flights in a hand-built flier over the coast documenting the loss of what he calls an “infinitely complex system” of barrier islands, swamps and bayous. The more he studies it, the more he understands its immeasurable worth. “There is so much value in this ecosystem. Hopefully I’m able to capture a little bit of that in my photographs and kind of make people think about this place a little more.
