  • Live Music
    6 galleries
    These are some of my favorite photographs of Jazz, Rock n' Roll, Blues, Rhythm & Blues, and other musicians photographed mostly in New Orleans and Los Angeles. Some of the earliest images were shot on film while shooting with my Leica cameras, and more recent digital images are all shot on pro Canon EOS digital cameras. Several of these photographs are in the permanent collection at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and the Louisiana State Museum.
  • Mardi Gras

    Here are several galleries of both color and black+white photographs of Mardi Gras in New Orleans captured by Skip Bolen. There really is nothing like carnival season in New Orleans! It's the yearly season of Mardi Gras parades, Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Carnival Krewes, Masked Float Riders tossing throws (beads, doubloons, throw cups and more) to the crowds, Mardi Gras Balls, flambeaux with kerosene torches, Mardi Gras Indians, elaborate costumes and French Quarter decadence!

    Here are several galleries of both color and black+white photographs capturing the historic cemeteries in New Orleans and Brooklyn, NY by Skip Bolen. If it's cloudy, gray, dark, overcast and rainy outside, chances are that Skip Bolen is in a cemetery somewhere photographing.
  • New Orleans
    9 galleries
    This is a collection of photographs taken in and around New Orleans... the city at night, architectural landmarks, old neon signs, late night jazz clubs, bars, French Quarter, downtown New Orleans and lastly, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. These photos show off the extreme range of emotions from the amazing beauty that I see everyday in New Orleans... to a city almost completely wrecked by a Hurricane.
  • Los Angeles

    These are Skip Bolen's photographs taken in and around Los Angeles mostly while living in Hollywood in Beechwood Canyon under the Hollywood sign. These are my images of the city at night, architectural landmarks, old signs, late night jazz clubs, restaurants and downtown Los Angeles. I am always searching for a sense of history and images that catch my attention that have something to say...
