The Multimedia Museum is the leading institution exhibiting photography in Moscow with recent exhibitions of Elliot Erwitt, Sebastiano Salgado, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Martin Parr, Alec Soth, Steve McCurry, August Sander, Berenice Abbott and upcoming 2014 exhibitions of Garry Winogrand.

About the photographs:

What an incredible Mardi Gras it was, my love/obsession for shooting with the rain came through this 2014 Mardi Gras day and on top of that I really got up and close to my all time favorite Krewe of Zulu for some unreal pictures! It was VERY cold and miserable, ( at least for New Orleans standards) but nothing great comes easy in life, does it…I suffered more than you can imagine, trust me on dat, but some of the Zulu photographs are in my opinion simply amazing! I’ll let you decide! ok?

Most street street musicians and artists in new Orleans performs where the tourists are, so they can make a living selling CDs and making a few tips while they do what they love. Beside the “first French Quarter stop” of Jackson Square, right in front of the St. Louis Cathedral, next, comes Royal Street, where most galleries are. There you will find performers lined up during busy weekends. Some of the musicians and artists line show up to hold their spot the night before just to make sure they have the prime spot available on crowded weekends!

I usually love for my images a muted and slightly unsaturated palette of colors, but when the light is just right, and the contrast screams at me, black and white conveys in my opinion a more timeless and mysterious feel to the photographs, and in this case, on these shots below, I think black and white worked just fine! Yes the French Quarter was very cold and wet by the way!

On Thursday, October 28, 2010, the city of New Orleans lost a great man and a wonderful musician. The world will not be the same without Walter Payton Jr.
Born and raised in New Orleans’ Uptown neighborhoods, Walter’s first brushes with Preservation Hall came in the early sixties when Allan Jaffe would lend him his sousaphone for gigs with the Eureka, Apollo, and Olympia Brass Bands. After receiving advanced instruction from Robert Rohe at Xavier College, Walter went on to perform on several hit records, including Lee Dorsey’s “Working in a Coal Mine” and Aaron Neville’s “Tell It Like It Is.”
Walter Payton also served as a teacher in the New Orleans public school system for twenty-five years, where he had the opportunity to instruct a young Ben Jaffe in the ways of the bass.
UPDATE Discovery Channel will air AFTER THE CATCH Episode 5 on Tuesday, July 13!
Episode 5 – Tuesday, July 13 at 10PM ET/PT
The fleet wraps up its time at the French Quarter’s Blue Nile bar in the season finale of AFTER THE CATCH. Captain Phil Harris is remembered in true ‘Nawlins style as fans pour onto Frenchmen Street for a traditional, raucous Jazz Parade. The celebration brings together all the captains to pay tribute to their friend and colleague.
On June 9th, 2010, Discovery channel filmed a funeral parade to honor the life of Captain Phil Harris from TV’s Deadliest Catch in the Marigny District of New Orleans. Crew members from the tv show, The Soul Rebels Brass Band and parades goers attended the New Orleans style Jazz Funeral which will be aired sometimes in July 2010.

When I got there, (too early as usual), the Discovery channel crew was already setting up cameras and gear in front of the Blue Nile, and up under a scorcing heat and humidity, I got a chance to meet and talk to the Discovery Channel Vice President of Communications Mr. Joshua Weinberg.

The procession didn’t last very long at all, but at the end (as in every Jazz Funerals) it got pretty wild and crazy! Mike Rowe from “Dirty Jobs” seemed to be having a blast as well!
