A cemetery is a quiet place. Graveyards are the silent cities of the dead. They are homes where our loved ones continue to visit us in death, just as they once visited our homes. Some cemeteries are so grand they truly deserve to be called a city of the dead - a necropolis. Wherever I go, I try to capture the voices suspended in marble, the dead remembered by roses.
I own and photographed all of the images in this gallery, and they may not be used without permission. Come and walk through the tall grasses, enter with humility and respect, and never forget the dead that we have loved.
