Lou Bopp Spotlights: New Orleans Artists

Posted in Lou Bopp Spotlights, Uncategorized, What's happening with the artists by K2Creative on April 27, 2016

Photographer Lou Bopp site is always on the move.  One of his many talents is highlighting a place, an organization, a community.  He gets inside, using every opportunity to learn.  He has a knack for making others feel comfortable – enough to invite him in, to show their true selves.  Take a look at his latest endeavor – a personal project on the artists and their homes in the “Big Easy”.

From Lou:
I went on this trip as I have so many other times & places in the past. With an open mind & cameras. The photos featured here were some personal images that I shot after working on a commissioned project. Always curious & hungry, we decided to stay a few days to explore & eat in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. We were fortunate to gain access into some pretty amazing homes of some of nola’s finest artists, painters, mardi gras wardrobe designers etc. Once we met the first one, we were introduced to other artists, we tapped into the network! We even shot some bts of mardi gras floats which I wasn’t that excited about. Until we arrived that is!

Some of these dwellings are like the ones that I have seen walking down the streets of New Orleans in the past and wondering & imagining what the inside must look like, what was on the other side of those walls and who lived there. I’m really curious in that manner. Much to my delight we were granted access into some really special spaces and had the opportunity to meet, photograph, talk & eat with many of the home owners making our extended trip well worth while!
