n the mid 1930's, Gene Leingang 's eye turned to photography. Intent on capturing images of life in New Orleans, he carried a camera everywhere he went . His favorite place to take pictures was at Pontchartrain Beach. He was there with his camera when it opened in 1939, and continually photographed the Beach until he was called to overseas duty. From 1942 to 1944, he photographed Paris, Berlin and other European cities, documenting the progress of World War II. These rare photos were recently discovered by his son in a box of memorabilia. Bergeron Gallery is open to the public and is showing his work.
