Memento Mori
The one thing that is certain in life is that it will end in Death! I wonder where photographers go in the afterlife? A white-walled studio in the sky, or a dark room below with red light and foul-smelling chemicals? The latin phrase Memento Mori (roughly translated as remember death) evolved with Christianity but is deeply embedded in many cultures. The Victorians were obsessed by death and all things Gothic and nowhere is this more evident than at Highgate Cemetery in London. It is at once mysterious and macabre, but also a true slice of Victorian history. We were fascinated and frightened by its dark beauty and chose to photograph it using monochrome and infra-red techniques in order to capture our feelings about this very special place.
