Pirates, Blockades, and Commerce: an Expedition studying coastal fortifications, lighthouses and structures of historic importance along the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

These images represent raw collections of coastal photography work and research into the beaches, barrier islands, and coastal fortifications along the U.S. Gulf Coast. This work was performed by Jonathan Harris beginning with the 2019 Sea Education Association ~ Elsaesser Fellowship Award and continuing onward since then.
