Joshua Mann Pailet was born in New Orleans in 1950 and raised in Baton Rouge, LA. He graduated from Rice University in 1972 and 1973 with a B.A. in Economics and a B.S. in Accounting.
In 1973 Pailet founded A Gallery for Fine Photography to create a venue to collect, display and sell 19th and 20th Century photographs. He taught at Louisiana State University (Spring 1977).
Though he has photographed locations across the country, the greater body of his work revolves around the city of New Orleans, which has allowed him to document life there for the last several decades, especially the years after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
