About the book:

Photographs by William K. Greiner. Foreword by Thomas Lynch. Introduction by Steven Maklansky. 60 stunning photographs. Book measures about 11 3/4" X 10 1/2" X 3/4", with 125 pages. ISBN 0-8071-2413-3. Greiner, a New Orleans-based photographer, focuses his camera on cemeteries, a common camera subject in Louisiana. He makes uncommon images out of them, however, in large part because he shoots them in color rather than the usual black-and-white. These photos are part-landscape shots, part-portraits. Mixing humor, pathos, and deep respect, he captures the tributes that mourners have paid to the deceased and the traces of life they leave behind: flowers, shrines, framed portraits, colored gravel, plastic flowers, dead arrangements on scarecrow-like wreath-stands, potted plants, religious statuary, and, of course, gravestones of every variety. The book contains good-quality, lively reproductions.
