I was born in 1944. I grew up in New York City and Greensboro, North Carolina. I graduated from Greensboro College and The University of North Carolina. I moved to New Orleans in 1965 and began to photograph the culture of that singular city. Nothing captured my imagination like its unique cemeteries. In 2005 hurricane Katrina destroyed my negatives, slides and prints. Since that time I have continued to photograph these mysterious and wonderful sacred sites.
