Ad astra per aspera

To the stars through difficulty

A long and demanding  career in Germany and Belgium were reason enough to cast things that were not job related aside, until recently, when I revived the affinity for science and photography.Soon after this re-emergence, I found a niche where I can combine research and photography. I found myself exploring cemeteries and discovered that I thoroughly enjoyed the research involved, not only of the cemetery itself but all related topics such as: funerary culture, thanatology, funerary symbols, to name just a few.

 

At present I conduct research with respect to the following topics:

The grave as a communication platform: communication about the deceased, communication addressed to the deceased, communication of the deceased addressed to the world of the living.

The use of photographs  on graves.
