New Orleans Time-Lapse Video: Above-Ground Cemetery

Posted on Jan 27, 2013

New Orleans Time-Lapse Project

Here’s a video snippet from my ongoing New Orleans Time-Lapse Project of some of the city’s famous above-ground cemeteries. New Orleans is built on swampy terrain and surrounded by water on three sides. Consequently the departed are buried above ground in impressive stone monuments and mausoleums.

I used a motion-control head to pan across the monuments for a fluid movement during the timelapse. Contrasting shadows created by crosses and statues move across the crypts as the sun sets on this “city of the dead”.
