The mysticism of cemeteries is inescapable. We are intrigued by the way these sacred cities of the dead have the ability to both fascinate and unnerve us at the same time. Within these final resting places lie many personal histories marked by nyriad monuments ranging from grand architectural homages to endearing sculptures and simple gravestones. The cemeteries of New Orleans have long enticed residents and visitors alike with their beauty and rich history. In New Orleans, the cemeteries are unique in that they are primarily built above ground. Done in part because of the city's location below sea level, this type of burial is also a common practice rooted in the area's Latin culture tradition. In over 200 photographs accompanied by an illuminating narrative, the author invites us to join him on a visual tour of some of the most captivating burial site of the Crescent City.
