I Contain Multitudes


He was sitting. My neighbor was worried that he was doing something he shouldn’t be. I thought that I’d check him out using the guise of liking his ink. He turned out to be a nice guy and that’s all I need say about that. I haven’t seen him since I made this photograph. IfContinue reading “I Contain Multitudes”

A NOLA Portrait


A portrait. To be more specific, a street portrait. It’s hung around in my portfolio for a few years now. Depending on who is looking at my work, I often start with this picture. If this doesn’t catch your eye, I don’t know what will. If it’s printed, a 20 inch deep version of thisContinue reading “A NOLA Portrait”

A Revelation


I met this guy on the way to somewhere else. That’s when the best pictures happen. I was walking to the second line in Central City. I parked a few blocks away. A little distance is important so I could make a quick getaway. That is, if I want to jump to another location. I’m notContinue reading “A Revelation”

One Time, One Night


Street portraits made easy. When you have help. My buddy, Pableaux Johnson was working with a new video light on a still camera. It is flat panelled and a continuous light source. He thought it would help illuminate the Mardi Gras Indians as they walked while they showed off their suits. After all, on St.Continue reading “One Time, One Night”

The Bywater


This is what I thought. If I’m changing the last series to something new, it really ought to be new. Something different. Something unexpected. Something in black and white. So. Here it is. The picture is about two months old. I made it when I was taking a couple of guys around New Orleans whileContinue reading “The Bywater”

In Your Hands


Your pictures. Your hands. Eyes. Brain. Heart. That’s the thing about trying to teach you what I do. We all see differently. We all have different interests. Some of us make fully fleshed out pictures using most of the tools available to us. Others work in jpg and never move away from auto everything. OthersContinue reading “In Your Hands”

Passing By


Sometimes you just have to wait. Be patient. The picture will appear out of nowhere. That’s the genesis of this picture. I waited. A guy on a bike came along. But, I got a little confused because I didn’t anticipate his path quite accurately. I wanted the shape of the old, abandoned factory. That roofContinue reading “Passing By”

A Street Portrait


It’s just a theory. My theory. But, I have long believed that you can use events to make other kinds of pictures. That you don’t always have to literally document the scene as it unfolds. That you can make portraits. Or, detail images. Or, even something that has absolutely no roots in the event. IContinue reading “A Street Portrait”

The Truth


Bo-be-ya. That word is the only word this young man says. He said it at the Clover Grill. On Bourbon Street. In The French Quarter. It means “Good” or “I like it.” I’m told that it’s very hard to make a portrait of him. I didn’t think it was so hard. It’s all about relatingContinue reading “The Truth”
