At the RC Bridge Lounge on Nov. 30th, an artistic affair, chaired by Zack Smith, took place as the New Orleans Photo Alliance kicked off its Second Annual PhotoNOLA exhibit with a gala and print auction.
The party, which featured live music by Broken Smokes, raised funds to buoy operations budgets, which include housing portfolio reviewers from around the country and giving New Orleans photographers a chance to meet with others in the photography community.
Throughout the evening, guests bid on photographs by Chris Jordan, Maggie Taylor, Ellen Susan, Josephine Sacabo, Richard Sexton and many others. The next several weeks, the New Orleans Photo Alliance was a presence felt throughout the city through their exhibitions, portfolio reviews, workshops, presentations and other events.
