Hosted by educator and photographer Zack Smith, “The Frame: A Louisiana Photograph Podcast” is a bi-monthly series that showcases the work, backgrounds, and creative philosophies of Louisiana photographers. These hour-long conversations are recorded live at the Louisiana Humanities Center in New Orleans. Click here to episode 1 featuring Pableaux Johnson.
The next recording session takes place on Thursday, April 20 at 6 p.m. Smith interviews photographer Josephine Sacabo. Sacabo’s early work followed the photojournalistic tradition of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, but her artistic development was soon deepened by an altogether different medium-poetry. Citing Rainer Maria Rilke, Charles Baudelaire, Stéphane Mallarmé, and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz as influences, Sacabo’s work has taken a dreamlike, mystical turn, further enhanced by her own customized printing process.
The Louisiana Humanities Center is located at 938 Lafayette Street. The event is free and open to the public. “The Frame” is made possible through a grant from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
