From The Frontline: Jonathan Ferrara

The Historic New Orleans Collection

Local artist Jonathan Ferrara is no stranger to big life changes. He’s a Boston banker turned Julia Street artist and gallery owner. Still, Ferrara grew hopeless at the beginning of the pandemic and used photography as an outlet, capturing moments of hope with local luminaries. In this edition of From the Frontline, the Historic New Orleans Collection’s first-person narrative series, Ferrara takes us behind the scenes of his Hope Photo Project.

Sarah Holtz covers local history. Her work has also aired on Houston Public Media, Northern California Public Media, KFAI, KTOO, KUNM, WCAI, WGBH, and WWOZ.
Mark Cave is an oral historian and senior curator at the Historic New Orleans Collection.
