Jerry Granaman started taking photographs in the mid 70s with a used camera and a roll of black and white film. It was love at first sight when the film was developed. Photography is a hobby that he never tires of, as there is always something new to learn and ways to improve his work. Twenty years ago, he walked into the French Quarter in New Orleans and another love affair started—this time with a city. Combining the two worked out well, as he was able to enjoy the many wonders of New Orleans while working on his photography skills. To this day, he attempts to build a photographic record to convey the passion and love he has for New Orleans, the French Quarter, and the artistic, Bohemian, and Caribbean influenced lifestyles the city offers.
