Big Al the Camera Man

Big Al the Camera Man is a photographer, writer, and designer living in New Orleans. His work strays away from the familiar scenes of New Orleans photography and looks instead to threatened architecture, arcane graffiti, signs, and the possibility of humor and irony that infuse all the city's neighborhoods, not just the well-known ones.

Mardi Gras with Ryan Hodsgon-Rigsbee

Q&A with photographer Ryan Hodgson-Rigsbee, who curated our Instagram account all through the recent Mardi Gras season. Hodgson-Rigsbee had access to many behind-the-scenes moments with Mardi Gras Indians, the riders of the parading Krewes assembling their special throws, and other special events in the massive, weeks-long celebration of costumes and excitement.
