Antonio Henriquez

We go out to dance tango nearly every week, and we know so many people as dancers. As time goes on we all get to know a little more about one another beyond the the dance hall.

Antonio Henriquez and his wife Mirna are lovely peolpe and lovely dancers, and recently I found out that Antonio is a photographer.

Antonio says he is an amateur photographer, though I think his beautiful work is very professional. I love the painterly quality of it.

He is a long-time New Orleans resident whose favorite subject is the city of New Orleans itself, including the architecture and people in the French Quarter.

Antonio has been photographing for the last ten years with an emphasis on digital photography.

His pictures have won several awards and have been chosen for exhibitions in NOPA Currents 2009 and Cemeteryscape.

You can get a little piece of New Orleans for yourself via one of Antonio's fantastic photographs:

I hope you've been enjoying my week long posts about New Orleans and Carnival and Mardi Gras and The World Champion New Orleans Saints.
New Orleans always inspires and delights me. This time of year just seems to bring it out even more!

Way cool, and such an interesting variety. Love the one of the musicians, and the trolley car reminds me of a Georgia O'Keeffe watercolor of a night train coming through the prairie (one of my favorites of hers).
