Better Picture: David Spielman

Aug 25, 2020

Airs Tuesday, August 25, 2020, at 6 p.m. David Spielman has been photographing New Orleans for over 40 years, producing books of images including musician, writers, artists, street scenes, locals and tourists, capturing the anguish, allure, feel and sights of this great city.  (more)

His latest photo book, New Orleans Portrayed, is a welcome journey through the familiar and the new. With his Garden District Gallery full of his work he professes to having never had a job. He may not have had had a job but thankfully he has done a ton of beautiful work. David joins the Better Picture on Tuesday, August 25 at 6:00 pm right here on Red River Radio to talk about living the life of the artist, looking for and finding inspiration, and answering your questions.
