E.J. BELLOCQ. Photographs From Storyville, The Red-Light District of New Orleans, New York: Random House, 1996. Square quarto, expanded edition of a 1970 book, pp. 83, black cloth boards with blind-stamped lettering to front and spine, duotone photo plates. These photos, taken in the early 20th century, were first shown at the Museum of Modern Art in 1970, printed be Lee Friedlander from glass plates he had purchased. The book released for that show went out of print, thus this new edition, larger and with more photos than the original. Bellocq apparently established rapport with the women of Storyville and so was able to make highly successful portraits, which existed in obscurity until the MOMA show.
