In New Orleans, a city built on a swamp, the dead are enshrined above ground. Row upon row of crypts and mausoleums with elaborate entryways, wrought iron fences, and decorative rooftop statues form the Cities of the Dead.
The vaults reflect the heritage of French and Spanish colonists, who were accustomed to seeing these types of burials in their homelands. The styles and sculptures decorating the homes of the dead often reflect activities the deceased had pursued in life.
Time and extreme weather systems further shape their quiet abodes. The photos in this book were taken at Greenwood Cemetery & Mausoleum, St. Louis Cemetery No. 2, and Saint Patrick Cemetery No. 2.
The thirty-five full-color photos have been reproduced at the size of a standard cellphone screen to replicate the experience of being there. Each photo is paired with a title that evokes these cities within the city. Experience the cemeteries as beautiful, historic, and meditative places in <em>Necropolises of New Orleans I</em>.
