Hosted by educator and photographer Zack Smith “The Frame: A Louisiana Photograph Podcast” is a bi-monthly series that showcases the work, backgrounds, and creative philosophies of Louisiana photographers. These hour-long conversations are recorded live at the Louisiana Humanities Center in New Orleans.
Episode 3: L. Kasimu Harris
L. Kasimu Harris is a storyteller who uses writing, photography and video to push the narrative. He is a New Orleans native and has been in more than twenty group exhibitions across America, two abroad and three solo photography exhibitions, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
Harris’ work modulates between photojournalism, documenting culture and constructed realities, all in an effort to tell stories of underrepresented communities in New Orleans and beyond. He created Parish Chic, a style column for the Oxford American and has been published in Yahoo Food, and Southern Living and The FADER. Most recently, a feature he wrote for Edible New Orleans was selected for the book “Best Food Writing 2016” that will be published in November.
