James Billeaudeau is a photographer and artist living and working in south central Louisiana. His work focuses on conceptual, product, and product photography. James has shown nationally and internationally, including The New York Historical Society in NYC, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and Le Memorial de Caen in Normandy, France. James is currently working on a body of work entitled God, Guns and Gravy. It takes a real life approach to studying the realities of religion, politics & economics, and family/work life in American culture. The project aims to focus on the plight of the working man, the banality of suburbia, the degradation of rural and family life due to a changing economy, and the facets of what it means to be American in a rapidly changing world. James enjoys cycling, making memories with friends and family, playing music, positivity, the outdoors, dancing, and immersing himself in Cajun culture.
