NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — A New Orleans photographer is celebrating the artistic side of the carnival season with a new exhibit at the Guy Lyman Fine Art Gallery called “Faces of Mardi Gras.”

The show features 27 framed prints by local photographer Marc Pagani.

The artist is holding a party Saturday, January 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. with music, drinks, red beans and of course, king cake!

For 22 years, Pagani has been photographing people, places and things around the world, but over the last 12 years, he’s made a point of creating portraits during Carnival as well.

Pagani says all of the images were all shot on location and in the heat of the action!
