Burial grounds and grave markers are an important part of our heritage and deserve to be treated as such. They reflect the lives, the beliefs and the attitudes to death of past communities and individuals. They are landscapes of both poignancy and sadness, whose memorials provide a window into our ancestors past thoughts and deeds together with a rich seam of archaeological evidence for the avid researcher. Nonetheless, today these ancestral gems are disappearing at an alarming rate. In an attempt to record this tide of destruction, in the autumn of 2013 Morte Photography was born, to bring to life the plight of such historical and architectural treasures.
