Located in the heart of New Orleans' Garden District, the gallery is housed in a century-old building that was built as an ice-skating rink. Since ice didn't last long down South, it soon became the livery stable for a funeral home, then a grocery store with a gas station. The Rink as it is now named; is home to a bookstore, gift shops, professional offices and a Café. Down the block from Commander's Palace Restaurant, catty cornered from Lafayette Cemetery #1, the gallery is just one block from the St. Charles Avenue Street Car Line, placing it in the center of old New Orleans.
In the Gallery you will find a varied selection of finished, framed prints of SPIELMAN'S work from around the world. His work is done in Black & White, the prints and framing are crafted to archival standards. Also located there is his darkroom where prints are produced and framed.
SPIELMAN has recently begun to produce smaller digital prints/posters of some of his more important images, affording new collectors the chance to become familiar with his work, at a lower cost.
Of all the Katrina books that have come out, Katrinaville Chronicles has an intimacy, immediacy and authenticity that few other books can duplicate. When Hurricane Katrina approached New Orleans, photographer David G. SPIELMAN decided to stay and weather the storm, assisting his long time friends the community of the Poor Clare nuns. Faced with the greatest personal and professional challenge of his life, he determined to document the scene unfolding around.
