Bourbon Street, New Orleans
old world character of New Orleans is at once elegant, cultured,
and refined, yet dilapidated, boisterous, and vulgar. To
document these abundant eccentricities, Jackie Brenner is
drawn to subjects that expose the night people of her hometown
with Bourbon Street and its strip clubs as the perfect tease.
To gain entry into this darkened, shadowy world was difficult.
she began this project, Brenner was expecting the strippers
to be mere objects and she finished it knowing these ladies
as human beings. Jackie Brenner's enigmatic images now serve
as historical record of the time before Hurricane Katrina's
devastation created another obstacle in the path for all
of us who are addicted to the character of New Orleans.
