Sinopsis:

Florestine Perrault Collins (1895–1988) lived a fascinating and singular life. She came from a Creole family that had known privileges before the Civil War, privileges that largely disappeared in the Jim Crow South. She learned photographic techniques while passing for white. She opened her first studio in her home, and later moved her business to New Orleans’s black business district. Fiercely independent, she ignored convention by moving out of her parents’ house before marriage and, later, by divorcing her first husband.

Between 1920 and 1949, Collins documented African American life, capturing images of graduations, communions, and recitals, and allowing her subjects to help craft their images. She supported herself and her family throughout the Great Depression and in the process created an enduring pictorial record of her particular time and place. Collins left behind a visual legacy that taps into the social and cultural history of New Orleans and the South.

            It is this legacy that Arthé Anthony, Collins’s great-niece, explores in Picturing Black New Orleans. Anthony blends Collins’s story with those of the individuals she photographed, documenting the profound changes in the lives of Louisiana Creoles and African Americans. Balancing art, social theory, and history and drawing from family records, oral histories, and photographs rescued from New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Anthony gives us a rich look at the cultural landscape of New Orleans nearly a century ago.

From the Inside Flap:

Florestine Perrault Collins (1895–1988) lived a fascinating and singular life. The privileges enjoyed by her Creole family before the Civil War had largely disappeared in the Jim Crow South of her youth. She learned photographic techniques while passing for white, opened her first studio in her home, and later moved her business to New Orleans’s black business district. Fiercely independent, she ignored convention throughout her life. She moved out of her parents’ house while still single and unengaged and, later, divorced her first husband.
          Throughout her career, Collins successfully negotiated societal constraints of race and gender. Even during the Great Depression, she financially supported herself and her family. In the process, she created an enduring pictorial record of her particular time and place. Collins’s portraits have appeared in many museums and some of them now reside in the Smithsonian’s photography archives.
          Between 1920 and 1949, Collins documented the presence, beauty, and dignity of Creole and African American life in New Orleans, a world often forgotten or ignored today. Her skill behind the camera allowed her to make intimate portraits that attracted families who wanted photographs of their babies and children’s first communions. Wedding parties, high school graduates, and debutantes also came to her studio. Contemporary viewers are readily drawn to the social and cultural history of New Orleans and the South that is the legacy of her life work.
          It is this legacy that Arthé Anthony, Collins’s great-niece, explores in Picturing Black New Orleans. Anthony blends Collins’s story with those of the individuals she photographed, documenting the profound changes in the lives of Louisiana Creoles and African Americans throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Balancing art, social theory, and history, and drawing from family records, oral histories, and photographs rescued from New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Anthony offers a rich and nuanced look at the lasting record of an important early twentieth-century African American photographer.

Arthé A. Anthony is professor of American studies at Occidental College.
