Self portrait at the lovely Materie Cemetary in New Orleans, the blue is from the blue stained glass along the top of the Crypt

or as they say – N’awlins


  1. Statues & SuchMay 9th, 2011

I am proud of my Native American Heritage and am making it a goal to return to a lot of the old ways.

Photography is my friend and outlet, making a statement concerning injustice and the need for equality amongst every soul that walks this Earth is my passion.

I create art to be controversial, and make you think.

The truth has never damaged the righteous cause

    Wonderful capture; like the lighting. The pose and statue both portray despair. By the way, I like the jacket.

  • thank you Virginian

    It is such a shame that so many cemeteries no longer allow statues. It seems as though death has become such a taboo subject that now even cemeteries want the dead to be invisible.

  • So true Red Queen. and there are two reasons why, vandals and antique ghouls. yep people steal the angels and take them home
