Welcome to New Orleans Canvas Magazine for Fall of 2018! This special expanded 1st Anniversary Issue is focused solely on the art of photography and profiles of seven exceptionally talented photographers who live and work here in New Orleans.
Multiple gold stars have been applied to the forehead of our Photo Editor, Pamela Reed, who selected the photographers included and provided indispensable guidance on questions posed to the photographers during our interviews. Pamela is not only invaluable to our team, as you’ll learn from reading her profile among the seven photographers featured in this issue, she’s also a singular talent in the field.
Our cover artist for Fall is world-famous photographer Curtis Knapp. Curtis is well known for his iconic portraits of celebrities, as well as covers for Playboy and Time Magazine and many other nationally known publications.
Sam Jasper contributes a great article on Roy Guste, featuring a selection of Roy’s beautiful images of New Orleans Burlesque dancers. Dorian Bennett, the famous art collector, graciously interviewed E. Paul Julien for this issue. We were also fortunate to interview former LIFE MAGAZINE photographer Andy Levin, film set photographer Skip Bolen, and landscape photographer Frank Aymami.
We hope you enjoy our first photography issue. These are exciting times for New Orleans Canvas Magazine. Check the website often for coming new features over the next months. With our expansive (and growing!) community of artists here in New Orleans, there should be no shortage of enlightening subjects for profiles indefinitely. As always, we welcome your input as well on our “Friends Of” Facebook page.
