States of Undress: The Big Easy

Nicolette Potter


Potter examines the women she spent time knowing and playing with in New Orleans, to try and uncover if these friends of hers are incidental to New Orleans or visa versa? Sex and magic are a constant persona in this place; Potter reveals this aspect of the city through her black-and-white images. She spent many years living in New Orleans and apprenticed with jazz photographer Herman Leonard during her time there.
