The House that Sugar Built, Houmas House Plantation, Darrow, Louisiana, 2012

Wade Hampton, the largest sugar producer in Louisiana and the largest slaveholder in the South, built Houmas House in the late 1820s. Thirty years later, this plantation was the largest sugar producer in the United States. I made this image of one of its living rooms by night, lavishly decorated for the Christmas season. I shot through a window, obtaining a perspective that would have been impossible to create from within the house itself.
