About The Levee: A Photographer in the American South: Originated at the Cincinnati Art Museum, this special exhibition presents photographs by Sohrab Hura (Indian, b. 1981). The Cincinnati Art Museum is the first museum to exhibit The Levee, a suite of photographs taken by Hura on a road trip following the course of the Mississippi, from its confluence with the Ohio River to the last inhabited reaches of the Delta. It is a work about perspective, place, longing and hope. Learn more
