Why do we grief so much when confronted with death? Why are we repulsed by the sight of a lifeless body? Is this a reflex action towards our own fear of the unknown? Or is there a hint of selfishness lurking beneath that grief because we are more concerned about our feelings?
The following are photographs celebrating the life that exists in death, a beauty that is, perhaps for many, outside the realm of understanding.
