New Orleans based Documentary Photographer/Conceptual Artist Michael Alford explores the vast and renowned artistic talent of the cities’ music culture. This solo exhibition represents a collection of photographs captured from 2012-present in the fabled music venues, stages, festivals and streets of New Orleans.

Michael is known for capturing “defining moments” by blending and blurring the lines between Documentary, editorial, reportage and Fine Art.

Michael Alford was born in Seattle, WA but grew up in the American South. He spent the first half of his life serving in the U.S. Armed Forces (serving in multiple combat and humanitarian missions). The Artist became the State of Louisiana’s 1st Post-Iraq War Veteran to seek and obtain a Masters Degree in Fine Art (graduating Magna Cum Lauda, LSU/2013). He is a National/International award winning, published, exhibiting artist and educator.
