Mired In The Bayou, An Exhibit About The BP Oil Spill (PHOTOS)

We've all seen images of the Gulf Oil Spill - filmy waters, desolate shorelines and blackened, lifeless animals. But what about the lives and livelihoods of the everyday average people that have been destroyed - where are the photographs that tell their story? That's the question that Mired in the Bayou, a brand new exhibit premiering in New York City answers with a thought-provoking array of photos and objects revealing how the BP Spill has impacted and continues to impact the community of Bayou La Batre, Alabama's once lucrative seafood capital. This groundbreaking art exhibit, presented by Inhabitat, will be opening on October 15th at 99% Gallery in New York. If you can't make the exhibit in NYC, or can't wait to see the pics, click through the gallery below for a sneak peek of 'Mired in the Bayou' and a glimpse of the human face of the BP oil spill disaster.
