New Orleans Jazz Fest 2014

The years slip away and yet it never gets old.  For the better part of 20 years I’ve joined the parade of New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival revelers, capturing as much as physically possible over the two weeks.  Last year we found a different kind of success with our Instrumenthead Exhibition in the Frenchman Art Market and it inspired us to display within the festival.  In a full-circle experience, we did just that, showing off a collection celebrating the African Diaspora in the Congo Square Marketplace

Besides being nearly as busy as running around attempting to photograph the stages, connecting with our neighboring artists and meeting patrons on a different level was as inspiring as it was fulfilling.  I had the opportunity to be interviewed by students from the local Akili Academy and as always, we were able to leave a portion of our proceeds in New Orleans benefitting the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation.

Don’t think however I didn’t make just a little time to capture the action….
