August 2023 Issue
Welcome to your August 2023 issue of ANTIGRAVITY. Each August, we (mostly) take a break from the usual columns and features and instead highlight our renowned photographers in the annual Photo Issue. This year marks the 10th anniversary, and as senior photo editor Adrienne Battistella writes, “In the last decade, we’ve had a unique opportunity to see New Orleans’ underbelly through their lenses, and have published hundreds of images that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. Their mediums range from digital to film in the broad coverage of street, portrait, candid, press, live music, and still lifes.” This issue features photos from Adrienne Battistella, Angela Calonder, Victoria Conway, Avery Leigh White, Benry Fauna, Caitlyn Ridenour, Dalton Spangler, Jason Steger, Dan Fox, Hayden Legg, James Cullen, Julie Dermansky, Katie Sikora, Leone Julitte, Steven Hatley, Tamara Grayson, Ian Willson, and Tammie Quintana.
Happy Leo season! This season’s energy is going to be both challenging and rewarding. In this month’s For the Record we compiled public comments from the right to collective bargaining ordinance recently passed by the City Council, while MaCCNO provides tips on community engagement, plus your (un)usual assortment of comics, photos, poetry, and a tarot reading to close it all out.
