Photographer Rory Doyle shares a collection of photographs of the Mississippi Delta from above
The first time I photographed the Mississippi Delta from above, I was actually working on a story about the local mosquito abatement program periodically spraying the city with a plane. This flight revealed a much more complex Delta landscape not viewable at ground level. Ever since, I’ve been intrigued by the colors, textures and shapes seen from the aerial perspective. From farms to towns, rivers to bogues, levee cows to swamp egrets — my goal has been to capture the Delta terrain in a unique light.
