New Orleans Cemetery

By February 3, 2017News

It’s Friday and time for another featured orphan print from the vault. This was taken almost a decade ago while on a trip to New Orleans. Famous for their above ground cemeteries, I was fascinated with all the different styled burial vaults as well as the statuary that adorns them. This image was taken using a pinhole lens and a long exposure to get that moody, grainy feel. The skies were overcast and moody that day and this image reminds me of my grandmothers who always prayed for me. I love the simplicity of the pose contrasted with the complexity of the tonal qualities and sloppy borders. #orphanprint
