Black and White Photos of Cemeteries
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.
