Storyville portraits

none

Prima di ogni altra cosa va detto che queste immagini sono indimenticabili al più alto livello dellarte fotografica. E non è difficile comprendere perché il ritrovamento delle lastre fotografiche di colui che era stato sino a quel momento un ignoto fotografo operante a New Orleans nei primi anni del secolo costituisca una stupefacente scoperta e un arricchimento della inesauribile storia della fotografia. Ottantanove lastre fotografiche in differenti stadi di corrosione, di deterioramento e di disfacimento furono il tesoro che Lee Friedlander scoprì nella New Orleans dei tardi anni Cinquanta, e che in seguito acquistò. Quando, nel 1970, una selezione di superbe riproduzioni di quelle lastre, ingegnosamente sviluppate da Friedlander, fu pubblicata dal Museum of Modern Art, il libro divenne immediatamente, e legittimamente, un classico. Molto, in queste immagini, testimonia il gusto dellepoca: unaura da bassifondi

Though his life and much of his work are shrouded in uncertainty, E.J. Bellocq is celebrated for what is known: a series of sensitive, sensual, and unusual photographic portraits of New Orleans prostitutes, called the “Storyville Portraits” (c. 1912). E.J. Bellocq (American, 1873-1949) remains an ambiguous figure in history. Following his death in 1949, eighty-nine glass plate negatives of portraits of female prostitutes from New Orleans’ Storyville district were found in his desk. All of the images were taken circa 1912 by Bellocq, who was a commercial photographer practicing in New Orleans.
