Before the Katrina and Rita hurricanes, the oil spill and the flood, New Orleans and Cajun country were places to relax, sip a mint julep and eat crawfish while absorbing sounds of blues, jazz and Cajun swing. The Big Easy and the small Cajun towns along the bayou were laid back. Life went on as it had for the last 200 years. Stormy tides and oil-ladened water changed life in this area as it broke long standing generational family ties due to permanent relocation and loss of trade. The long road back has begun, but life is not quite the same on the bayou.
Louisiana Reflections takes us on a photographic journey back to a time and place in the 1990’s before the storms. Portraits, landscapes, architecture and still life make up this poignant collection of tri-tone images in a beautiful hardbound first edition by noted fine-art photographer, Joseph D’Antoni.
The artists’ 50 year career brings you on a personal journey with each image. Growing up in New Orleans D’Antoni lived and breathed the local culture spending every moment he could on the Bayous of Southern Louisiana. The Foreword to the book is by noted historian, John H. Lawrence, curator of photographs and museum programs at the Historic New Orleans Collection Museum, places the importance of this photographic work in historical perspective. The images speak to everyone from the area, visitors to the region as well as those who identify with the Gulf Coast and everything they have endured. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of this book go to non-profit organizations in Louisiana helping the victims of the storms and oil spill.
