Oak Alley Plantation was a sugar farm during the height of American Slavery. It was a beautiful place with a dark history, but I am glad we are through it.
Oak Alley Plantation
During my journeys as a engagement photographers couples will always take me to some unique locations and this was totally one of them. This image will be in the architectural fine art prints section of my online gallery.
There is so much to add to the history of this place and although it is an interpretation of our American history, it is an important part to understand of how the south survived and how they came to be. This replica of a sugar plantation speaks volumes in how this house was made.
People often confuse the house from the movie Forest Gump, which is a cult classic about American history. What I really loved about this place is how open and it really was and how it was so well bilt in it landscape. Everything was so pristine and excessively large in space. But it bothered me to see the salve homes as you walked up to the house. Glenn Washington, who was the fiancee of Heather who hired me to photograph their engagement is an African American who father served I the US Military, was is actually Japanese born citizen.
Mr. Washington explained to me how 40-50 Slave families would be stuffed into one home living there in a small cabin in close proximity to the Mansion. The landscape job they did on the property is quite nice to see, but knowing it’s a part of Slavery and our dark American history bothered me a bit. Glenn, assured me he didn’t feel offended and we had fun photographing all the areas.
Oak Alley is just one of those places, makes you wonder about history and what life what have been like back in those days.

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.
Archival materials are materials that are of high quality and are designed to last for a long time without fading, discoloring, or deteriorating. In the context of art, archival materials are typically used to create artwork or prints that are intended to be long-lasting and of high quality. Here are some examples of archival materials that may be used in the creation of artwork or prints: Inks: Archival inks are made with pigments that are resistant to fading and are designed to last for a long time without discoloring. Paper: Archival paper is made with high-quality fibers that are designed to resist fading and discoloration. It may also be acid-free and pH-neutral, which helps to prevent it from yellowing over time. Canvas: Archival canvas is made with high-quality fibers that are designed to resist fading and discoloration. It may also be primed with an archival-quality primer, which helps to protect the canvas and extend its lifespan. Other materials: Other archival materials that may be used in the creation of artwork or prints include archival-quality paints, adhesives, and protective coatings. It's important to note that not all materials used in the creation of artwork or prints are necessarily archival. It's always a good idea to check with the artist or manufacturer to learn more about the materials that were used in the creation of a particular piece of art.
