Leur Making Moves
by : Founding Editor & Creative Director Charles Champagne
Our relationship with the gallery started back in 2017 when I introduced myself to Holly during a round of soliciting in the French Quarter. She became interested in one of our contributors, James Kane, after seeing his work in Leur Magazine's issue 02. After a few more meetings, they decided to reach out to James to feature his work in their upcoming show, WTF.
Since then, we have remained close with the gallery and established a close relationship with their team.
I woke up early Sunday morning to give myself enough time to hash out any anxiety I was having, and then got everything I needed to the car for our drive to NOLA. Upon my arrival, Mary helped me pick out a small little spot for the stacks and let me take my time settling in, while I snapped all of the iPhone photos.
As my anxiety started to take over, I just couldn't help but to cry and smile. I stood outside, watching people look through the pages of something, for which I had worked incredibly hard.
Smiles, were on all of their faces.
And it felt good.
