Bottom of da Boot

Photographs by Kael Alford

Bottom of da Boot focuses on the people and places of the disappearing communities of Isle de Jean Charles and Pointe-aux-Chenes on Louisiana's fragile coastline. With photographs taken between 2005 and 2011, Kael Alford documents the lives of the people living in their eroding environment, as they honor the legacy of their Native American and French lineage.

An essay by Brett Abbott, Curator of Photography at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, introduces this book of photographs which were commissioned by the High Museum's Picturing the South series. An award-winning international photojournalist, Alford contributes a poignant essay about her personal experience discovering her own family heritage that is connected to these people and this place.
