St.Ofle -- Secret Smell

"You can tell by the kindness of a dog how a human should be."
- Captain Beefheart

this is a collage of a few photos that I took while visiting a slave plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana last week.

it was a slave plantation, but no one called it that.
They called it a "banana and sugar cane plantation" but they were kidding themselves.

I felt awful being there.

even a hundred of years after the last slave died, the stink of the evil part of the holy human spirit was still putrid and filled the air with the terrible secret smell of our horrible history.
