‘Morning Honey for Beb’

Julie Ledet draws from her Southern heritage for “Morning Honey for Beb,” a series of photo collages that pull from Louisiana culture, traditions and superstitions. The work is centered on the fictional character Beb, who is a “personification of the struggle between living a life of virtue and vice surrounded by the temptation and decadence occurring in everyday life in Southern Louisiana.” Each collage features a symbolic figure associated with Louisiana — from the alligator to offshore oil rigs — superimposed on sculptures of robed bodies of saints. These sanctified figures are all set against backgrounds of repeating fleurs-de-lis, the royal emblem that first came to Louisiana via French colonization and became deeply ingrained in the state’s cultural identity. The fleur-de-lis became both an emblem of Louisiana’s deep heritage and also its troubled history — in the 1700s, runaway slaves were branded with the symbol.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
