Memoriam is a 2003 study of cemetery sculptures in New Orleans by Ottawa photographer Robert B. Smith, particularly poignant in the aftermath of Katrina. Angels, crosses, stone and sky are the four components of these works that are quiet but not silent. It is not difficult at all to imagine hushed tones, or the rustle of leaves on the ground. The black and white photos are also evocative of John Berendt's tale of Savannah, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
