Don't be grave...




I got this weird fascination with graveyards in warmer climates: the use of happy colours and opulent religious symbolism on the graves are more frequent over there than at our protestant graveyards.

As with the celebration of the dead in Mexico, I believe in a ceremonial form of beauty, art and sometimes kitch to remember...

These were made in Biarritz during my roadtrip this year...
