Charles Lovell

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

After working in small and large format silver gelatin and color photography for over twenty years, in 2007, during an artist-in-residence program at the Emily Harvey Foundation in Venice, Italy, I began exploring digital photography shooting with a small-format digital camera. Upon return to the U.S., I learned digital printing, and exhibited my Venetian photographs at a solo exhibition at the Taos Center For the Arts, New Mexico. I moved to New Orleans in the summer of 2008 and I began photographing using a larger format digital camera and have now transitioned to a complete digital practice. In my photographic works, for the past seven years I have documented the unique history of the African-American cultural traditions that include second line parades, social aid and pleasure clubs, Mardi Gras Indians, and jazz funerals.
