I just hit the order button on Beyond the Dark Veil: Post Mortem & Mourning Photography from the Thanatos Archive. It’s been almost a year since I first noticed it online and since then it’s been among my “save for later” titles on Bokus (Swedish online book store) and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Death in pictures. It all started with the movie The Others and an obsession with the action of taking portraits of deceased arose and since then, I’ve actually studied the subject of post mortem photography from a cultural perspective. I still find it truly remarkable, beautiful and as something deeply connected to mourning and processing the loss of a loved one. What do you think?
