BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A birds eye view of coastal Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama highlights a new exhibition at the Ohr O'Keefe Museum of Art.

The works of pilot, photographer and painter Susan Guice is featured in the exhibit The Mysterious Play of Water. Guice's aerial photography exposes a very unique look at the world.

"I'm amazed every time I fly. The natural beauty is so astonishing and magnificent," said Guice. 

The photos from above earth also reveal an environmental reality, particularly in south Louisiana. Man and time have combined to create an ecological situation Guice wants everyone to be aware of.

"The state of Louisiana says that every 20 minutes, a piece of land the size of a football field disappears into the shallow, open water. I'm here to document the beauty of what's there so we can preserve it," Guice said.

The Mysterious Play of Water also takes people below the surface. Black and white photographs of kids in a pool have a playful quality. Reflections and light in underwater photography provide an array of surprises.

"You never know what's going to come out. It's like discovering a gem when you process the photos," according to Guice.

Guice also uses acrylic to bring wonderful paintings to life.
