Who was Fonville Winans?

Theodore Fonville Winans was a noted American photographer whose black-and-white images captured south Louisiana people and places.

Fonville was born on August 22, 1911, in Mexico, Missouri, died September 13, 1992, in Louisiana, and spent part of his childhood in Fort Worth, Texas, where, as a senior, in high school he purchased his first camera, a Kodak 3A model. Armed with this camera, Fonville shortly won $15 in a photography contest, which stirred his interest in pursuing photography as a career.
