Bellocq: photographs from Storyville, the red-light district of New Orleans
Bellocq has remained a famous enigma, after his extraordinary photographs were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in 1970. He has appeared as a character in a novel and as the subject of a controversial fil, PRETTY BABY by Louis Malle. Nobody knows when or how he died. The glass plates, from which these photographes were made, are in the possession of Lee Friedlander. We hve re-edited from this archive to produce one of the most stunning and frank studies of Storeyville at its height.
