A 78 page photography coffee table book focused on the porch culture of New Orleans. It's an endemic cultural study on porches and New Orleanians that has spanned the last four years. In an effort to capture what makes New Orleans different, I've photographed countless natives on their porch, the single architectural feature that separates this city from others serving as both a historical and architectural documentation and examination of Creole lifestyle. The front porch has quietly dominated New Orleans culture for centuries. It's the epicenter of communication, invitation and leisure and a glimpse into the lifestyle that defines New Orleans. Past the beads, daiquiris, and rolling floats lies the culture of the everyday, the real spirit of the city. Explore these porch portraits as a cultural documentation of the character and substance that drives the vitality of New Orleans. This collection serves as a small glimpse into the soul of the individual New Orleanian. We love to sit on our porch, we love to open ourselves to our neighbors and we love our leisure time. These images are meant to make you think, 'Aha, THIS is New Orleans... and I couldn't find it on Bourbon Street.'
