“Laissez les bon temps rouler!”
Margo and Arnie have been photographing in New Orleans since the 80s, separately at first, then together when they met and joined lives.
Both Margo and Arnie find inspiration in The Big Easy with its ever-changing cast of characters and quality of light. They delight in meandering in and around the French Quarter, taking in the architecture, window displays, and street performers, and always listening to the music, some world-class, others, merely enthusiastic.
Every time they return to this amazing city, they never tire of their “routine” — wandering the same streets, ducking into many of the same establishments, getting to know new ones, and always finding different ways to interpret what they see.
In this book, these artists bring two views of a historic and amazing city. Arnie is drawn to the visceral and sometimes raw aspects of New Orleans, while Margo is attracted to light and shadow, line and form, regardless of the subject.
