Grand Coteau

Grand Coteau is an iconic photographic record of a unique, historic Louisiana town, spanning thirty-five years (1977-2012). Photographer John Slaughter has selected choice images from his archive of vistas, architecture, and citizens to deliver a poetic presentation. An insightful introduction by Patrice Melnick as well as poignant captions add a social narrative that will inform and deepen one’s experience of the artful images. For those familiar with the town, Grand Coteau will expand your appreciation. For everyone else it will reveal a place like no other.
