During Mississippi-born photographer Jack Robinson's New Orleans period (in the 1950s, when he shot his famous Mardi Gras/Bourbon Street gay district photographs), he fell in love with a man named Gabriel.
Robinson became a bit obsessed with photographing his lover, often in the nude. His play with light and shadow created particularly sensual images.
Some of that work will be on display in an exhibit at the Jack Robinson Gallery (400 S. Front) through March. The show opens during the South Main Trolley Tour on Friday, February 26th from 6 to 9 p.m.
