NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Once again, New Orleans is being challenged. Hurricanes, oil spills, Covid-19, in good times and bad times, France has always stood by Louisiana.
The Consulate General of France is proud to present a unique exhibition that pays tribute to the people of New Orleans, a city that survives and thrives through hardship.
Vincent Sciama, Consul General of France in Louisiana, was particularly happy to ask iconic New Orleans photographer David Spielman to illustrate life in NOLA during such unprecedented times.
