|Eternal View: 19th Century Gravestones Portfolio
While on a trip to Scotland and England, I found myself infatuated with the serene beauty of old gravestones. The
various shapes, textures, and epitaphs were all very intriguing. Some epitaphs were so worn, I couldn't even read who
was resting below - or even when they had passed.
We, as modern-day humans, are quick to tear down old structures and build new. The new isn’t as robust and
meaningful as the old. I am passionate about preserving our history, and it is my hope that images in the series
Eternal View: 19th Century Gravestones generate an appreciation and greater awareness of preservation
These photographs of headstone memorials are what the deceased would see upon looking up from their grave.
