depart

During my travels, I have meditated on a different sort of voyage: the one that the soul makes to the afterlife. Death and the afterlife are perennial artistic subjects, and I wanted to express both the loss and the hope that I see as intrinsic to a person’s departure from the world. These photographs, taken at cemeteries and churches across the globe, capture moments of stillness in images that are unexpectedly warm and welcoming. The rich tones of the palladium process invite in the viewer, accentuating my view that death is not something to be feared, but a fact to be accepted and put alongside the viewer’s appreciation of life.
