Vanishing Louisiana

The climate crisis is here.

Despite global preventative efforts, our climate - and our relationship to it - faces inevitable and unprecedented change within the coming decade. There are communities around the globe that will become unlivable within the lifetimes of their current residents. Envisioned as a series, Vanishing seeks to acknowledge these harsh realities and preserve the stories, ways of life and emotional truths of communities in existential danger.

In the southern parishes of Louisiana, the state has deemed certain populated lands to be already "lost", leaving residents to the fate of rising seas and rapidly subsiding coasts. No one will be forced to leave, and many will stay until they no longer physically can.

What's it like to live in a place that cannot be saved?
