Southern flair between jazz, blues and soul: the colourful New Orleans coffee table book 

Is it possible to capture the energetic, chaotic and enjoyable lifestyle of the southern states in a coffee table book? The unconventional photographer and artist Werner Pawlok succeeds with this colourful photography book! With his camera, he portrays New Orleans, affectionately known as "Nola" for short, in all its colourful diversity: street life between soul and blues, the colonial-style architecture so typical of Louisiana and, of course, the people who characterise life in the "Big Easy". A visually stunning journey through the fun-loving jazz, blues and soul city in the south of the USA - New Orleans! 

A visually stunning coffee table book in the footsteps of Cajuns and Creoles 

This magnificent photo book reveals everything that makes a trip to New Orleans worthwhile: the colourful architecture of the metropolis on the Mississippi, still influenced by the colonial era, breathes the culture of the Cajuns and Creoles in Louisiana. Pawlok also immerses himself with his camera in places where the attitude to life in the southern states is more tangible than anywhere else in the USA: the bars and pubs of the French Quarter, considered the cradle of jazz, blues and soul, the lively life on the streets, colourful graffiti - and right in the middle of it all, the people of the dazzling music and art scene. 

Magnificent illustrated book with a flair for photographing an attitude to life 

Ever since his exhibition successes in the 1980s, Werner Pawlok, born in Stuttgart in 1953, has been able to be mentioned in the same breath as great artists such as Warhol, Richter and Mapplethorpe. His unconventional portrait photography breathes intense intimacy. And whether he is tracing the spirit of the past in New Orleans' colonial-era architecture or embarking on a journey into the heart of Cajun culture in the streets of "Nola" between street art and blues bars - Pawlok's unconventional style also characterises this opulent, colourful coffee table book.
