NOLA Textures

New Orleans is more than a city that hosts Mardi Gras.  It is more than a city that was devastated by a hurricane and a flood, it is more than zydeco, gumbo, po’ boys, and Rue Bourbon.  It is a city that has a feel to it, a texture, it is a tactile city that you need to run your fingers over to fully understand.

The last time I photographed the city, I was very determined to photograph the people and the culture.  This time, I went into it without a direction or plan and looking back through the images after the first day, I found many of them were simply about the texture of the city.

There is something to be said of the people in this city.  They are performers.  And they are good at it.  They will work very hard to give you a show.

Keep an eye out for images from my first trip to New Orleans, coming soon.
