Memento Mori (Diptych)
This is meant to be paired together as a diptych. Photos taken at Old Cemetery in Farmington, CT.
The context of “memento mori” is taken from a common saying used during the Black Plague to remind people that life is short. Enjoy it while you can. This has always been, for me, a positive message that has been peppered into my writing, music and photography. If it seems grim, that’s because it’s how I’ve come to terms with death. Greet the fiend at the front door…kinda like the ending to The Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman.
P.S. The writing “Memento Mori” was posted at the entrance of the cemetery gate.
