Claire Layrisson and Mary Clayton Carl both were horrified at the spill and wanted somehow to get involved. As they began talking to people, they decided to spread their stories. Claire, a writer, and Mary Clayton, a photographer, have been working together since 2002 when they met at Southern Woman magazine in New Orleans. The pair have collaborated on many additional projects, including producing the Sentimental Journeys catalogue for Longue Vue House and Gardens and much more.
