Images of Mardi Gras in New Orleans and Beyond

Photographer Robby Klein, a native of New Orleans now based in Nashville, spent several days recently in Louisiana and Alabama capturing images of Mardi Gras—the people, parades, and spectacles that make the season unique. In New Orleans, Klein photographed the Krewe of Muses and the Knights of Chaos, while in Mobile he made photos at the Mystics of Time parade, and then shot festivities in the Cajun towns of Mamou and Church Point. Here is a selection of Klein’s photos.
