Chapel of Rest
by Jacob Weeks
In our culture we do not like to discuss is- sues relating to death or even mention it even though the one thing that we all have in common is that one-day we will all die. As humans we are fearful of death and do not want to face it. This is a personal project and journey investigating what happens after we die? This project will bring us all closer and together and open up the taboo surroun- ding death with my photography, and push the viewer into spaces where they wouldn’t ideally choose to be.
About the artist:
Death has always intrigued, interested and inspired my work as a fine art photographer whether it’s through the decay of certain landscapes or the disappearance of certain historical landmarks or part of the journey towards death itself.
