What the Living Do
‘What the Living Do’ explores processes of loss and the impact it has on us. The series concentrates on concepts of rebirth showing how we can often gain from loss by determining how different cultures and practices contribute to how we mourn our dead. The materials that are involved in the grieving process are central to this series. Exploring how these things are at the heart of our rites of passage. The work gives an insight into the industry of end of life services and the people and processes behind these ceremonies. The images show how life comes to an end not only when the body stops breathing but when we have grieved enough to let go.
