The cypress swamps of Lake Martin near Lafayette, Louisiana are some of the most picturesque in the south. 'Reflections of Lake Martin' showcases the beauty of this landscape through nearly 100 color photographs taken by Ben Pierce.
A map of Lake Martin, descriptions of the area, photography tips, and captions for each photo are also included.
Ben Pierce was raised in the heart of Cajun country, Lafayette, LA, located in south central Louisiana. He is a graduate of the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture from Louisiana State University, and has recently returned to Lafayette where he lives with his wife and young son. A student of art and design, but never one of photography, it wasn't until Ben left Louisiana following college that his passion for landscape photography was born. Upon returning to the state, Ben has focused his photographic endeavors almost strictly on the swamps of south Louisiana. He aspires to capture beautiful images of the swamps in order to shift the belief that swamps are unattractive and uninviting environments.
