'Stones, Vaults, Flowers: Père Lachaise' 2017-2020

A body of work from Père Lachaise cemetery, Paris.

There are some beautiful individual images here – closing in on details, low depth of field, over saturated colours, out of focus, blurred – but bringing them together I compose with the camera ... a feeling, an homage to this place.

Conceptual: Instead of the axis 'xyz' being 'space time context' I roll the matrix through 90 degrees so the axis is now context (x), space (y) and time (z) – time being the floating variable (not just the variable time of the camera's shutter): a photograph of the memorial to the victims of the Paris Commune; photographs of the tomb of Victor Noir who became a symbol of opposition to the imperial regime after he was assisinated; photographs of stones laid in respect to the victims of the Nazi death camps; the life of flowers (all artificial); the light streaming through stained glass windows at the back of vaults. Light, bending, light bending – illuminating the Stygian darkness, revealing hidden relations, small revelations.

I am the unmoved mover contemplating the perfectly beautiful, indivisible connection between life and death.
