New Orleans’s Ladies of the Night

Photography // Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Bellocq of the “ladies of the night”in the New Orleans brothel neighborhood of Storyville at the turn of the century (approx. 1895-1910). His intimate and whimsical portraits of Storyville draw the viewer in to a way of life that has since become much more under the radar.
