Eugene Richards: Remembrance Garden

A Portrait of Green-Wood Cemetery

Text by Eugene Richards.

Eugene Richards: Remembrance Garden

An exquisitely somber portrait of Brooklyn’s Green-Wood cemetery across the seasons

In March 2020, after suffering from a severe bout of Covid, Eugene Richards sought out a safe place to walk and recuperate, and became entranced with Brooklyn’s much-loved Green-Wood Cemetery. Founded in 1837 and proclaimed a National Historic Landmark in 2006, the 487-acre burial ground and arboretum is the final resting place of more than 550,000 people. Over the subsequent years, Richards made nearly 100 visits to Green-Wood, photographing both poetical details and grand vistas in rich color, across the seasons and in all weather, creating lyrical images of snowbound headstones, grand mausoleums, intimate epitaphs, the encroachments of moss on stone and the wear of time on all things. The photographs in Remembrance Garden were taken between April 2020 and September 2023. Richards intersperses his images with names and dates inscribed on grave markers and deeply personal memories, creating a grand and moving portrait of the legendary cemetery.
Photographer, writer and filmmaker Eugene Richards was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, in 1944. Following college and studies with photographer Minor White, Richards joined Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) and was sent to Arkansas, where he helped found a social service organization and a community newspaper, Many Voices. After publishing his first books—Few Comforts or Surprises: The Arkansas Delta and Dorchester Days—Richards began a 40-year career as a freelance editorial photographer and artist, producing a wide range of stories about the human condition in America and abroad. He has authored 17 photographic and textual books, including Exploding into Life, The Knife and Gun Club, War Is Personal, The Blue Room and, most recently, In This Brief Life. He directed and shot seven short films, including The Rain Will Follow and Thy Kingdom Come. Richards has been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Robert F. Kennedy Lifetime Achievement Journalism Award and the Kraszna-Krausz Book Award for Photographic Innovation.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Albert Mobilio

Together the assembled photos in this book constitute a poignant tour of this lush domain where some 600,000 souls now rest and where the living can find solace among their quiet ranks.

Brooklyn Rail

Greta Rainbow

His photos reflect a private engagement...Richards identifies the rich tension between the natural and the man-made.

Eugene Richards' eloquent new photobook documenting Green-Wood Cemetery

Eugene Richards' eloquent new photobook documenting Green-Wood Cemetery

“Hands shaking, temperature 103. The days were not much different than the nights, then the fever lifted. I was still having difficulty breathing, but needed to move, get out of the house, go to where there’d be more than a glimpse of the sky. I barely remember my first days in Green-Wood. There were gravestones up and down the hills, bare branches floating overhead.” So begins Remembrance Garden: A Portrait of Green-Wood Cemetery, noted American documentary photographer Eugene Richards’ contemplative new three-year study of the beloved Brooklyn landmark. Begun in March 2020, when he was recovering from an early case of Covid—long before the vaccine and during that eerie time when the world was first shutting down—this quiet, powerful volume reminds us that Richards is a living treasure whose vision can be as poetic as it has sometimes been searing. We are proud to have published this newest volume in his half-century output as a master photography book maker. continue to blog
