Shattered, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2012

Vandalism is rife in this inner city cemetery. This tomb, nearly 200 years old, seems to have been shattered with the force of a cannonball. More likely, it was a rock or hammer that defaced this piece of New Orleans history. Some of the tombís elegant cursive engraving incongruously survives the brutality of the vandalís work.
