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

This burial ground, founded in 1789, is the oldest existing cemetery in New Orleans. It features 600 tombs, allowing for multiple burials. It is the interplay of light and shadow that gives this scene its meaning. The cemetery seems haunted, lonely, and decaying, yet rich in symbols of immortality.
