Final Resting Place

The finality of death – looking at ageing and fragility from a different angle.

Shadows cast on memorial stones in a local graveyard balanced with images of a former home for the elderly – captured after it’s closure and a significant fire. Itself teetering on permanent demise.

Shared as pairs the images reflect on the contrast between the living world of the photographer and the end of life represented by the two environments captured.

In the summer I conducted a dual photo assignment in a local graveyard and around the burnt-out shell of an old-folk’s home – this photobook/zine presents the resulting imagery. The beauty of dappled light falling on the gravestones and the quiet solemnity of the out of use building. Both elements, presented alongside each other, final resting places of their own.
