My Eternal Slumber series represent a serene view of a subject that is typically shown as dark or haunting. My images are filled with light. They allow the viewer to take time to reflect on society’s view of death and dying.
Spending time in each cemetery has been very comforting for me personally. This exploration has helped prepare me for the loss of a loved one, as well as, to provide an opportunity to visit those that have passed. My choice of cemetery statuary as a subject allowed me to merge documentary photography with fine art. I am inspired to push myself creatively.
I invite you to explore my series and contemplate the meaning behind these statues, and perhaps, to wonder how you would like to be remembered. Additional photos in this series can be found at www.angeladellutri.com.
