From time to time, I enjoy photographing a cemetery. It may sound morbid, but there is such rich history, architectural gems and I find that the birth, life and death are all present in one place. This is particularly the case in some of the cemeteries in London.
While cemeteries are a focal point to remember those who have passed away, they are also an expression in tangible terms of humanity’s act of remembering the dead. Styles change, and it’s interesting to see this. However, the act is pretty much the same.
Cemeteries also are places that I find very peaceful – places where I find my creativity and contemplation often mix.
Below are some photos I took last year in the Beckenham cemetery in South London.
