A captivating exhibition by Camille Farrah Lenain, Sisters of the Hunt, concluded its run at the NUNU Arts and Culture Collective in Burnaway, Louisiana (March – May 2024). Through stunning photography and immersive sound art, the exhibit delved into the lives of remarkable women hunters in rural France and Southern Louisiana.

A World Beyond Tradition

Lenain's lens captured these women disappearing into the wilderness, forging deep bonds with each other and the land they hunt. Sisters of the Hunt celebrated a unique sisterhood – women who reject traditional expectations and embrace their strength and connection to nature. This exhibit challenged societal norms that often portray women as vulnerable, instead showcasing their power and deep respect for the natural world.

A Journey Through Time

More than just a documentary, the exhibit offered a mystical experience. Lenain's artistry blurred the lines between ancient mythology and the 21st century, creating a captivating journey for all who attended.

The Artist Behind the Lens

Camille Farrah Lenain, a French-Algerian documentarian residing in New Orleans, is the mastermind behind Sisters of the Hunt. Her impressive background includes work for prestigious publications like The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and The Washington Post Magazine. Lenain's photographs have graced international exhibitions, including at the Arab World Institute and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

Making the Hunt Possible

The success of Sisters of the Hunt wouldn't have been possible without the support of several organizations. Grants from the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development and the Acadiana Center for the Arts provided crucial funding. Additionally, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, St. Landry and St. Martin Parish Tourist Commissions, the Boisvert Foundation, and the Franco-American Benevolent Society all played a role, along with the NUNU Arts and Culture Collective.

While Sisters of the Hunt may have concluded its run, the powerful stories and captivating imagery it presented will have a lasting impact.
