Eugene A. Delcroix (1891-1967)

New Orleans native Eugene A. Delcroix photographed scenes from the French Quarter and Louisiana swamps. He established his own photo studio in the 1930s.  His art photographs were popular with tourists.  However, he was internationally known as a "master of composition and light."  He exhibited in Tokyo and London.  In 1938 he and Stanley Clisby Arthur wrote Patios, Stairways and Iron Lace Balconies of Old New Orleans and a portfolio of his work was published in Pencil Points, an architectural magazine. He also served as president and judge of the Orleans Camera Club. His work is in the Historic New Orleans Collection and the Louisiana Digital Library.
