Word from Photographer
It’s difficult to explain in a few words why one loves taking lonely journeys to cemeteries waiting for the right light to take a picture, for a crow to land or reading epitaphs and expect people to understand your passion.
What I know is that I have never thought to cemeteries as the fields of grief but rather as open air museums able to tell us history and tradition of a nation, places worth to pay a visit at.
And above all I have always admired burial art as a real form of art. And that’s basically why, in the early 90ies, I started taking those pictures which you can see today in this site.
