‘Levee’ by Adrianna Ault invites us to embark on a powerful journey of healing as she navigates the complexities of grief and loss after her mother’s passing. Along the serene Mississippi River, Ault finds solace in frozen moments that transcend time, capturing the very essence of life’s joys and heartaches. The series began as a way to better understand the surrounding landscape of New Orleans, where she was raised as a child. There she discovered how the city’s surrounding waterways expose the land to a constant state of vulnerability. The physical landscape is parallel to an emotional landscape rooted within the culture of New Orleans and its people.
