PhotoNOLA opens today, December 12th, for its annual 4-day run.
PhotoNOLA is quickly becoming a major event in Southern photography. The folks in New Orleans pack a lot of life, energy, and photography into just a few days' time.
Organized by the New Orleans Photo Alliance, in partnership with the galleries, museums and photographers of New Orleans, PhotoNOLA offers a wide range of photography exhibitions, many of which are on display not just this weekend, but also throughout the month.
Work on display includes images by photographers with (dare I say) a Southern focus like Deborah Luster or Emerson Matabele (see image above) but also nationally and internationally prominent photographers like Andres Serrano, Edward Burtynsky, and Gerry Yaum.
The festival lineup also includes portfolio reviews, workshops, lectures, demonstrations, book signings and the PhotoGALA.
And, wherever you are during PhotoNOLA, you've got New Orleans itself right outside the door. Let the good times roll!
