beauty and sadness

Brookwood Cemetery is located near Woking, in England. I have wanted to visit this cemetery for quite some time and finally took the chance recently. Knowing the experience was going to be a bit surreal, I decided to bring my infrared camera with me.

The site is large and quite beautiful. Every detail seems to have been attended. Memorials are both large and small, all imbued with grace and strength. This created a quiet conflict for me – the pain and sadness of so much death cradled within such a gorgeous setting. I suppose any other way it would simply be unbearable.
