Exhibition: Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012-Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013
Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Signing:  Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012

WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection returns as a participating venue in PhotoNOLA 2012 by hosting an exhibition of photographs by Charles Martin. A companion catalogue will also be released.

For eight years, Martin has documented the centuries-old tobacco-growing traditions of St. James Parish, in southeast Louisiana. The area is the only place in the world that harvests perique, prized by connoisseurs as the strongest and most flavorful of tobacco varietals. The labor-intensive cultivation process dates to the early 19th century, and its rituals have descended as occupational folklore through a handful of local families, including Martin's.

 With 40 images, the exhibition will open in conjunction with PhotoNOLA 2012, an annual city-wide celebration of photography that will take place Nov. 29-Dec. 2 at multiple venues. "Perique: Photographs by Charles Martin" will open Thursday, Nov. 29, and will remain on view at The Collection's Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres St., through Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. The galleries are open Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and admission is free. Details on other PhotoNOLA exhibitions and programming are available at http://www.photonola.org/.

In addition to the exhibition, THNOC has also produced a companion catalogue, complete with a selection of Martin's images and essays by Mary Ann Sternberg and John H. Lawrence. All three contributors will be on hand for a viewing and book signing Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Williams Research Center. The galleries will open at 3:30 p.m. and the book signing will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The book, which retails for $25, will be available for purchase at the signing and is available in advance through The Shop at The Collection. For more information, visit http://www.hnoc.org/ or call (504) 523-4662.
