GoZePa is a mobile photography gallery dedicated to offering the quality of content, esthetics and production of fine art galleries directly to the public at affordable prices.
Our focus is to capture moving and inspiring moments that reflect the beauty, struggle and humanity found in everyday life.
In New Orleans, the Katrina images reflect our stunned walk through Treme (our neighborhood) and Bywater 3 days immediately following the hurricane. Uncle Lionel Batiste’s funeral, one of our most successful series, reveals the epic nature of the celebrations which are the reflection of the heart of New Orleans. The Frenchmen Street jazz Sessions captures the emblematic life of the music of Frenchmen street for the last 10 years. Our international collection covers slices of life of Cuba, Italy, Spain, France, Turkey andPortugal.
It is a collaboration of married couple Cecelia Fernandes, a New Orleans native Artist/Art Director, and Portuguese Photographer Jose Fernandes, a New Orleans resident since 1989.
