Photograph: St. Roch's Cemetery

St. Roch's Cemetery: New Orleans, LA; 2012.   This image is a preview of things to come. Right now we are hard at work here at equallyempty, bringing you a small photographic essay on St. Roch's cemetery in New Orleans, LA.

   Known for its 'cemetery culture,' NOLA is full of old cemeteries with above ground mausoleums and tombs for the city's deceased. With portions of the city lying well under the water table, above ground burials is a necessary fact of life.

   New Orleans has some of the prettiest cemeteries this side of the Atlantic, so visiting one or two is a must for anyone visiting the Crescent City. While St. Louis cemeteries #1 and #2 are the most famous, we decided to go off the beaten path, exploring St. Roch's cemetery in Faughburg St. Roch, so downriver from the Margny that the neighborhood was historically referred to as Faughburg Margny Nouveau.

   St. Roch was the patron saint of miraculous cures and there's a room devoted to his, well, devotion. The cemetery itself is beautifully white-washed and there wasn't another soul around the whole time we were there. Hopefully, in about a month we'll have a small portfolio of images available to purchase of this wonderful place.

    I want to cordially invite y'all to our Underground Art Market at TransAmoeba Studios on Dec 11! As well as many talented artists and entrepreneurs, my good friend and co-op Edible Alchemy, I'll have a table there where I'll be selling Christmas cards, original artwork, and photographs. It will be the ultimate underground art bonanza, and just in time for the holidays.

   You can check out some of my Dada pieces - which I'll be selling - here. I'll also be featuring many of the photographs that have appeared on this website. Check out the link for the facebook page and all other pertinent information. The event starts at 2:00 and will go to 10:00. Expect there to be some good snacks, wonderful music, and an overabundance of inspired art by wonderful people. Come check us out!
