E.J. Bellocq was an American photographer born in 1873. He lived and worked in New Orleans photographing landmarks, ships and machinery but most of the prints and negatives were lost or destroyed over time. After his death in 1949, negatives from his Storyville photographs, featuring prostitutes, were found and purchased by Lee Friedlander. The images have since been published in the book Storyville Portraits.
