Mystic Addict in New Orleans
Category: Travel Portraits
Photo and caption by Carlos Detres
This inebriated man was walking down St. Claude Street in New Orleans. After a conversation with him, I asked if I could make his portrait. He was the embodiment of mystique, dignity and flair of New Orleans but he also illustrated the issue of addiction that plagues the city.
Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
