Gallery space located at 818 Royal Street (upstairs) in New Orleans

Gallery Eight One Eight is a contemporary photography gallery on Royal Street, New Orleans, that expresses in one physical space our desire to bring out images that would not appear on front pages, nor on the walls of traditional fine art galleries, but rather, trigger within us a deep experience of beauty and conflict inherent in the unique cultures that we have lived and loved in our travels and right here at home.

These images speak of the universality of the human condition and the inter-connectivity of emotion.  As a visitor who recently visited our space said,  “These images are the story of Mankind, where every picture tells a story and together they tell every story.”

Our mission at Eight One Eight is to tap onto the collective consciousness offering a voice that shouts the essence of the new zeitgeist, allowing each captured instant to speak so that art can influence, while inspiring a strong counterpoint.
