About

"The celebration of people of color has always been a part of my visual narrative. A visit to New Orleans with photographer and friend Max Stern in March 2017 was my first opportunity to experience a Second Line and Super Sunday with the Mardi Gras (Black) Indians of New Orleans. The pageantry of color and music was intoxicating. My heart and my eyes were stirred as I took in the array of elaborate headdresses with glorious feathers, intricate beading, and the sounds of NOLA jazz. I wanted to capture on canvas this unique celebration of the convergence of Native American and African American cultures that comes to life in New Orleans on Super Sunday." - Robert Freeman
