Event Details

After an amazing night on Saturday I extended the show.

 I am now scheduling private showings at the church through October 31 st.  

Old Felicity Church

Exclusive views of New Orleans parks and landscapes, captured at night.


Award-winning night photographer, Frank Relle, prepares a new collection to be hosted at the Old Felicity Church on October 19th 2013, from 6 PM to 10 PM. The event will feature 22 limited edition photographs from his latest project: NIGHT SHADE, Exploring Natural Spaces.

Relle’s photographs, illuminated and shot at night, range from civilized to wild depictions of nature. The photographer’s work reveals the contrast between chaotic natural areas and formal urban landscapes. This collection includes the carefully spaced oak trees and familiar public structures of Audubon Park and City Park, alongside the chaotic overgrowth of unmanaged nature in Couturie Forest, Brechtel and John Lafitte National Park. The tamed, manicured landscapes highlight harmonious relationships between nature and man, while the captured chaos of nature evokes memories of Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Relle’s use of theatrical lighting maximizes the visual pleasure across his range of subjects. 

Frank Relle is a photographer born and based in New Orleans, Louisiana. His work is included in the Smithsonian Museum of American History, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. His photographs have been printed in the New Yorker, the Southern Review, and the Oxford American magazines. Frank is the recipient of numerous awards including a 2007 International Photography Award and the Photo Lucida Critical Mass Top 50 Photographers of 2006 and 2011.
