As Louisiana enters Carnival season, photographers around the state will take to the streets to document our unique culture. On February 2 at 6:00 p.m., the Louisiana Humanities Center presents the first in a series of live podcast recordings hosted by photographer Zack Smith.
Supported by a grant from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the series will explore the views and visions of Louisiana photographers. Smith will interview Pableaux Johnson, a New Orleans-based photographer who has photographed New Orleans second lines and Mardi Gras Indians since 2008. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Garden & Gun, and the cover essay in Louisiana Cultural Vistas‘ Winter 2014 issue.
The event is free and open to the public. The Louisiana Humanities Center is located at 938 Lafayette Street in New Orleans.
