Publisher's Description

Douglas Baz and Charles H. Traub have been the subject of numerous videos on this book + project, provided by the Historic New Orleans Collections. Please follow link to site, here, to view.

For six months in 1974, two young photographers, fresh out of art school in Chicago, traveled through Cajun country, documenting the people, festivals, material culture, and haunting landscapes of Acadiana and its coastal outposts. Never before published or exhibited as a group, the 163 black-and-white images in Cajun Document illuminate south-central Louisiana as it stood poised on the verge of enormous change.

Coastal erosion, a boom in oil and natural gas production, and worldwide interest in Cajun music and Cajun food would shortly transform the landscape, the economy, and the culture of Acadiana forever. Douglas Baz and Charles H. Traub's sensitive, insightful photographs preserve an image of Cajun country less well known and less subject to outside influences than it would ever be again.
