Burning Sugarcane Fields

September 24

Baton Rouge photographer Bruce Q. Williams was deeply struck the first time he observed sugarcane fields being burned during harvest season, as he and his mother drove from Baton Rouge to Beuche following his grandmother’s funeral. He photographed the jarring sight, developing the images in his kitchen sink at home later that day. Now, half a dozen images from this striking series are on display at The West Baton Rouge Museum. wbrmuseum.org.
