This is a black-and-white infrared photo of a cemetery that I often pass while driving along a back road to the store. It is sort of an oasis in the middle of industrial parks and surrounding parking lots belonging to BWI airport. Infrared photography of nature often creates an ethereal, peaceful quality to a scene. If I had a loved one buried here, I would want to look at this type of photo to bring me solace. I never realized this before but I learned that many headstones face east for religious reasons. This practice can be traced back to ancient Egyptians and Greeks, who worshipped the sun god.
Months to Years is the visually engaging online quarterly journal that my photo appears in. They publish works of nonfiction, poetry, photography, and art that explore grief and loss. The journal is free online to view as well as to download.
