This is Gated Tomb Decatur Cemetery. I took the digital photographs in this collection at the Decatur Cemetery, in Decatur, Georgia, USA in 2004 with my Olympus camera. I worked on them in a computer graphics program. This collection of fine art photographs is brilliant. Even though the location/subject matter one which many people find uncomfortable, (a cemetery) the end result is a collection of fine art photographs which are engaging, easy to look at and conversational. I found that photographs such as these make the subject of the cycle of life - birth, life, death... or transition - to be more approachable, easier to explain, and acceptable. Through my research, I have found that the macabre (having death as the subject matter) has garnered enormous interest and is finding its way into collections, globally.
