Purchase options can be found at the bottom of each artist’s page.

Fonville began his career as a professional photographer in the late 1930's and for over fifty years traveled the highways of South Louisiana photographing the people and places that define this unique and diverse culture. His many celebrated images have appeared in numerous publications including a book on his life and work entitled "Fonville Winan's Politics, People, and Places." A PBS special, "The Cruise of the Pintail", chronicled his journey through South Louisiana on a small boat using a 16mm camera to record his travels. His work has been honored with exhibitions throughout the world, including: Los Angeles, London, Paris and Angers, France. In 1990, The Foundation for Historical Louisiana presented Fonville with its prestigious preservation award for his enduring visual record of Louisiana's culture. Since his death in 1992, collector's have paid thousands for his vintage prints. His entire collection is now archived in the Louisiana State University Libraries Special Collections Department.
