"Pork Chops was a frail little man and he danced on the streets of the French Quarter in New Orleans for decades. One would see him dancing before a crowd of tourists on Bourbon Street or leading the second line of a jazz funeral. He wore his familar derby hat and always carried a fancy umbrella that he jauntily thrust upwards when open or used as a cane when closed. I photographed "Pork Chops" and his fellow street dancers over a period of years and they loved to show off for the camera.
This bromoil transfer required six separate press passes with different colors of lithographic inks on each pass. An Ettan etching press was used to transfer the inks from the Forte Elegance photographic paper onto Bockington water color paper. This was a one-of-a-kind print and only one transfer print was made." (Gene Laughter, August 2006)
