Judy Cooper

Judy Cooper is a photographer and writer living and working in New Orleans. She taught at the college level before becoming a professional photographer. She became interested in photographing the social-aid and pleasure-clubs in the late 1990s, and eventually envisioned a book that would celebrate the traditions’ history, pageantry, and community. She reached out to other photographers and writers to complement her work, and Dancing in the Streets was the result.
