Kichea Burt’s Legacy of Photos

Throughout photojournalist Kichea Burt’s career she developed a keen and masterfully creative eye which enabled her to visually tell the unique story of New Orleans in all of it’s complexity and color . Dave Ankers, WWOZ Director of Content says of Burt, “She seemed to know every musician in New Orleans, or at least knew everything about them . She introduced me to more photographers, musicians, friends of musicians, poets, and Mardi Gras Indians . She shot second lines, festivals, shows at Tipitinas, Jazz funerals, Mardi Gras parades . Everything . She was out every weekend, and it seemed like she never missed any celebration in New Orleans .” A compilation of Burt’s photos dated 2014 – present are shown below.
