I was going to give this my ultimate compliment – like a very short film – but realized I've said that before in this thread (about Bruno Barbey). Well, I mean it here, too! So good!

Weston's work in Louisiana resembles a more restrained Clarence John Laughlin, and may have been a conscious influence on CJL's work.

Edward Weston. Girod Cemetery. New Orleans. Louisiana. 1941.

.

This picture was taken in the now defunct Girod Street Cemetery, a Protestant cemetery founded in 1822 near the site of the present-day Superdome. Weston must have chosen this shot selectively, a beautiful secluded corner, because by this time the cemetery was in abysmal condition. Tombs were overgrown with vegetation, caskets stuck out of opened vaults, and parts of the cemetery could only be reached by boat.

This article discusses the history of the cemetery and its decline in wonderful detail, including vivid photographs from LIFE Magazine depicting the decay of its final years.

A bizarre and depressing footnote regarding the cemetery's closure: from its founding the Girod Street Cemetery was a racially integrated cemetery with both white and black burials; after its closure in 1957 (3 years after the Brown vs Board of Education), they tried to segregate the white bones from the black bones and interred them in two different cemeteries.
