In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.

It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer.  A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.

Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer. 

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art. 

He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.

Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.

St. Joseph Church New Orleans’ St. Joseph Church is one of the most-beautiful churches in the city - even more beautiful than the better-known St. Louis Cathedral.

The church was dedicated on Sunday, Dec. 18, 1892, and was officially opened for services on Jan. 1, 1893. While St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter is probably better known, St. Joseph is far more beautiful

The Catholic church under the auspices of the Vencentian Fathers is massive, measuring 95 feet from floor to ceiling and 100 feet by 150 feet long inside the walls. The church can seat 1,200 people. The foundation and structure contain almost 4.5 million bricks.

The cornerstone was set on Oct. 8, 1871, although construction work had begun in 1869. Work was suspended between 1875 and 1884 because of defects in the foundation. And the roof was replaced in 1877.

About 3,000 people attended the dedication service. The church at that time was an empty shell, with bare walls, plain glass windows, wooden altars and no pews.

In 1903, the first four of the 10 stained glass windows were placed at a cost of $1,500 each. The marble altar was erected in March 1915. Also in 1915, the crucifixion scene above the main altar was finished. The chandeliers, the terrazzo flooring and small stained-glass windows along the side of the building were added between 1926 to 1930. The interior also was painted at this time. by andycrawfordphotography


NASA asked the public to vote for their favorite satellite image from the series created by the U.S. Geological Survey, “Earth as Art,” and posted the five most favorited images about a month ago. “Earth as Art” is composed of images taken by satellites part of the Landsat Program, which is managed by both NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey. The U.S. Geological Survey selected certain features from the images and colored them from a digital palate. The series was created for aesthetic purposes rather than scientific interpretation.
