Photography: The Beautiful dead.
Photos by: V.V
I was one of those days the other day and my friend Derek came by my place to cheer me up. He has been talking to me about the cemetery by my house for a while and I was kinda weird about visiting it because I had never been in one before. He told me that cemeteries are peaceful and cathartic for him, so I decided to go and decide for myself. I don’t consider myself to be some type of photographer extraordinaire but I like to take pics when I am feeling understimulated by life. It is kinda like a hobby for me. I believe that when we are feeling a little down or just out of it in general, we happen to create the most beautiful works of art. I love the way my pictures came out, they all have an eerie beauty to them. If you look at some of them closely there are some strange glares in there as well. Now I know what Derek means when he speaks so highly of cemeteries, call us freaks, call us crazy, but I have found myself a new peaceful place to just relax and find clarity.
Many parts of this cemetery has been vandalised and broken into. It is a shame that people would do such things. The gate-keeper says he constantly has to board up those coffin houses because people break into them and throw parties. Gross? Hell yes. Disrespectful? completely. Are they going to hell? Damn right.
Someone opened this one half way >:(.
For respect I have removed some of the names off of tomb stones.
The cemetery was full of trees and flowers…This place of the dead was actually full of so much life.
Some tomb stones had pictures of people who passed in the early 1900s.
This is an eerie photo.
There goes that purple glare. Might just be the sunlight, who knows.
This tree eats people! sike.
This makes me so mad..people are so horrible.
That last storm we had really messed up some parts of the cemetery.
Another purple glare. I love this picture.
The gate-keeper said he had to re-brick this and some losers still broke it down.
The gate-keeper told me that this statues leg isn’t supposed to be turned outward, his boss says it’s very strange. I think so too.
I don’t think anyone would attempt to climb that thing.
Found this little guy walking out..almost stepped on him but he was already struggling..:/
If you think I am crazy, visit your local cemetery. I promise you will feel some type of inner peace.
