2015 - 1st Place Photo Story for Large Weeklies
Mardi Gras dance near a highway while waiting to travel another property during the Courir de Mardi Gras outside Mamou, La., Feb. 28, 2017. On the day before Ash Wednesday in the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun country, Mamou men gather outside American Legion Evangeline Post No. 123 in the early hours for a traditional Mardi Gras run. Their identities concealed under patchwork fringed costumes, mesh masks and conical hats, the Mardi Gras – as the individuals and the group are referred to – drink, dance and chase chickens, all the while causing a little mischief before the restrictions of Lent begin.
Mardi Gras search the brush surrounding a property to find a chicken that was released by the property owner outside Mamou, La., Feb. 28, 2017. The Mamou run is regarded as a traditional run and therefore doesn't allow women to participate.
A Mardi Gras returns with the chicken he caught outside Mamou, La., Feb. 28, 2017. The chickens are presented to the Capitaine or co-capitaines who lead the group and track the number of chickens each member catches.
