"Louisiana Road Trip" -Special Exhibition at New Orleans Jazz Festival

I am very honored to be in "Louisiana Road Trip" which will take place in the Grandstand of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Not only will I have three photographs (seen above) in the exhibit and my father, Norris Fontenot will have a photograph in the exhibit. We Fontenots have 4 out of the 50 pieces in "Louisiana Road Trip." Not bad, I think. This photographs in this exhibit were chosen by Nick Spitzer, producer and host of "American Roots" radio program based out of New Orleans.

From the Jazz Fest website:
Louisiana Road Trip
"After Louisiana, nothing else is real." Robert Penn Warren

Throughout the history of Louisiana, New Orleans has been the light at the end of the road for most travelers. Though its music, food, and festivals have made the Big Easy the ultimate destination, the highways and towns leading to New Orleans are swelled with the people and cultures that make Louisiana one of the most unique and diverse places in the world.
This exhibit, organized by The New Orleans Photo Alliance and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, contains images that depict the beauty and diversity of the great state of Louisiana. Submissions were juried by Nick Spitzer producer and host of American Routes, American Public Media.
