Petrochemical America: Project Room, photographs by Richard Misrach, throughlines by Kate Orff/SCAPE represents a unique collaboration between photographer Richard Misrach and landscape architect Kate Orff. The exhibition brings into focus the industrialized landscape of the lower Mississippi River Corridor that stretches from Baton Rouge to New Orleans. Revealing the collaborative process between photographer and designer, Petrochemical America features Misrach’s haunting photographs of the region known as “Cancer Alley” and Orff’s Ecological Atlas, a series of visual narratives, or ‘throughlines.’
