The Little Houses

The Cajun grave houses remain a cultural mystery. Relics from days when a community cared for their dead has been overshadowed by corporate care. Where once many little houses stood, sheltering the now long forgotten, there remain only three dating back to the early 1900's in Istre Cemetery in Louisiana.

There is doc about the houses, appropriately titled Little Houses. You can find a trailer for it on the website or check out a book that is a companion piece featuring the photographs used here by Gwen Aucoin.
