Stewart Harvey’s photographs have been exhibited and published widely in during his 30-year professional career in Portland, Oregon. He is a recent recipient of an Oregon Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship, and his work is in the collections of the Portland Art Museum, The Tacoma Art Museum, and several University Archives. Two of his New Orleans “Sketchbook” series were published in the “Katrina Exposed” book, and are included in the print collection of New Orleans Museum of Art. It was also featured as a 20-print photo essay in LensWork Quarterly. In 2008, the State Museum of Louisiana purchased 24 of his ongoing New Orleans Sketchbook series. He has also been photographing the Burning Man Event since 1989, and this work has been widely published in both magazines and hard cover books. Most recently, he was selected as one of four featured photographers for “Burning Book”, Simon & Schuster, 2007.
Nurturing Shells: The Culture of Personal Space
“It has been said in New Orleans “culture bubbles up from the bottom,” and this city is unique in that only a little of what constitutes its cultural currency trickles down from elite institutions. Other than its grand architecture, the itinerant musicians and shabby shop owners contribute as much to the cultural essence of the city as the social elite or the power brokers of art and politics. Individuality is esteemed in the Crescent City and so is irreverent self-expression. Often that individuality is illustrated by costuming during Mardi Gras parades and Second Lines, but it very often also carries over to their living or working environments. At its core New Orleans is a bohemian city, a city of dreamers and schemers, a city of artists and the artistically inspired, individuals who’ve transformed the act of living in New Orleans into monuments of personal expression.”
Photographs are Epson Ultra Chrome pigment ink on Museo Silver Rag 100% cotton paper.

Trees of New Orleans is active work in progress:
“The Druids and other ancient cultures responded to trees with worship and mythology. Today we respond to the symbols that they present: longevity, perseverance, patience, strength and resurrection. On returning from Katrina evacuation I discovered newfound appreciation for what a vital part trees are to New Orleans. As I explored the city for tree landscapes, I experienced a living spirit in those trees. That is what I attempted to capture in my photographs.
I make a living in advertising and architectural photography. “Trees of New Orleans” grew out of a calendar project with designer Phillip Collier, for John Benton at Bayou Tree. I enjoyed the change of working outside. My approach was closer to the street photography that I enjoyed when I first started making photographs. I was back to going out to see what the world of chance and natural light had to offer. Photographing New Orleans filtered through its trees brought me into neighborhoods that I hadn’t appreciated and helped me to rediscover those places that were familiar. “
