Few books have captured the beauty of New Orleans interiors and Creole-style design quite like Richard Sexton’s New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence. Published in 1993 (Chronicle Books) and again in 2003, the book was dubbed “the best photography book ever done on the city.”

A resident of New Orleans, Richard Sexton is a noted photographer, artist, writer, critic, teacher and author. Sexton specializes in photography of architecture, design and landscapes.

Several of Sexton’s photographs are featured in this month’s roomplanners magazine.  We dedicated the entire issue to New Orleans homes and his shots helped us capture the flavor of this unique city and its one-of-a-kind interior design.
