PHOTO NOLA and P4 meet

 

Dec 1st -Dec 31st

 

Description:  PhotoNOLA is an annual celebration of photography in New Orleans, produced by the New Orleans Photo Alliance in partnership with museums, galleries, and alternative venues citywide

 

Artists:

 

Erin Nelson

Muffin Bernstein and

Elisa Mason

 

 

Muffin Bernstein: Muffin Bernstein is a Louisiana artist utilizing our ecosystem as her palate.
Within her photographic collages she conveys the transformative and healing power of nature as well as themes of rebirth and reawakening.
Muffin has been fortunate to travel to Ireland to photograph three different waterfalls. As a water sign Muffin has always loved being surrounded by water. There is nothing as majestic as a rushing waterfall. Muffin’s water series captures droplets that splash while being frozen in time

 

Erin Nelson: Erin, a New Orleans born photographer, is a graduate from the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, MO, with a BFA in Professional and Fine Art Photography. She has been working in photography since 2005, concentrating in large format film and alternative processes. Living in New Orleans has deepened her understanding of preservation and exploration. “As a photographer, I like to concentrate on what it means to make a memory. Nostalgia is something that tugs at my soul constantly. I want to convey those feelings in new ways through photography to make lasting impressions and produce various memorable experiences. My inspirations include Norman Rockwell, Ansel Adams, Eastman-Kodak, and the American Dream of Manifest-destiny.”

 

Elisa Mason: Elisa Mason is a Louisiana fine art photographer who draws from her childhood memories growing up crabbing, fishing and shrimping in the bayous of lower Alabama for her seafood worker series. She feels that capturing the daily life and activities of the communities with deep-rooted seafaring traditions is a way to bring attention to the extreme challenges these people face. Seeing the Islenos people of St. Bernard struggling for survival deeply touches her heart. Watching the waters and marshland they have called home for over two hundred years being endangered is infuriating, and without legislative help and public awareness, there will be no way to reverse this damage.Elisa seeks to campaign for change by illustrating the humanity of these hard-working individuals and families who have been bringing us our seafood, many for over five generations by capturing them pursuing their livelihoods on our coastal waters.
