Photographer & Concept: Julia C. Tenney
While the pictured beads do apparently originate from New Orleans, I procured them over several years' worth of Mardi Gras Parties held on Tuesdays of the annual "Pennsic War".
I assembled and mailed these postcards from Athens, GA, while staying with Robin Colleen Moore, with the ever dimming hope that I might keep driving and experience Fat Tuesday myself.
The day after Valentine's Day, Robin and I drove into Atlanta to meet up with a couple other "NINnies".
One invited me to join him and his coworkers for a last minute roadtrip to Mardi Gras.
I later redid this shoot with the large quantity of beads I brought directly from Mardi Gras.
