Airs Tuesday, September 10, 2019, at 6 p.m. Neil Johnson, one of Shreveport's favorite artists returns to The Better Picture for another hour of fun, insights, information and stories. Neil currently has a fantastic one man show called Still Photography at ArtSpace in Shreveport that is a compilation of 80 photographs taken over 40 years. These imagesare his retrospective of pictures that have spoken to him. This is not his commercial work, this is his love of photography for its own sake. Neil exposes himself through shots that move from flowers to merry go rounds, stillness to motion, haunting to elegant and abstract to precise. And of course Felton, our purple armadillo oversees it all. The show runs through September so hurry in, you don't want to miss it.
