Happy Birthday George Dureau! Today We Celebrate You!

Today, we are wishing a happy birthday to George Dureau! Born in New Orleans in 1930, Dureau was immersed in the city’s unique art and culture throughout his life. His artistic career has been described as a New Orleans romance between the photographer and his subjects, many of which became his “extended family.” Dureau always demonstrated a singular ability to render the beauty of the human figure in intricate compositions often inspired by allegorical scenes from great paintings and sculptures in Western art. Happy Birthday, George Dureau!⁣
