Photograph by Johnny Donnels, New Orleans Photographer, Donated to SoFAB

by Chris Smith

Joan Donnels has donated a photograph taken by her late husband, Johnny Donnels, a well-known photographer in New Orleans. Donnels’ studio was located on Saint Peter Street in the French Quarter.

The 12” x 16” photograph features two pans of crabs in preparation to be cooked. All the crabs are laying on their sides or backs except one which has its back fully exposed to the viewer. The picture is titled The Outsider.

Johnny Donnels died earlier this year.
