For hundreds of years the lower Mississippi River in Louisiana has supported a steady flow of human enterprise. In the last century, heavy industry has transformed this landscape. Towering refineries, mills, and factories loom over a river network plied by tankers, barges, and cargo ships. In Enigmatic Stream, author and photographer Richard Sexton documents this region’s commercial infrastructure and its relationship with the people and environment around it. Through nearly one hundred black and white photographs, this book captures the essence of a complicated and often mysterious section of the country’s largest waterway.
