Old Louisville Photography

Here are some photos from a couple of different trips down into Old Louisville. As I mentioned previously, the area is rich in history, and is decorated with enormous old Victorian homes. St. James Court (below) is a premiere place to be, and home of an annual art fair. The area is dotted with real gaslamps! So charming!


Below is the clock tower on the University of Louisville campus, and on the right, a beautiful church in the area.

The guys I was meeting with for this photoshoot told me they were envisioning vintage imagery with little pops of color… kind of like the Pleasantville posters. I, however, was not a big fan of that idea. They were saying “Yeah, Jess, what is that called?” And I said– “Cheap photographic trick??” But, alas, I caved. I did a series of photos that all have a pop of green in them. These, to me, symbolize new life coming up from the old. We, as a part of The Louisville Project hope to bring revitalization to the neighborhood through the power of the gospel of Jesus.

Here’s one example of the amazing architecture down there. This is a famous mansion on St. James Court. Can you imagine living there back in the 1800’s??
