FAMILY FUNERAL HOME
DEALING IN DAILY LIFE WITH DEATH AND COFFINS.
Death, the inexplicable and unapproachable of our existence, becomes simply a service. The funeral’s spaces and their stereotyped rituals seek to give a meaning to life. An instant captures the last memory and aims to materialize a symbolic world for those who will stay in this part of the sidewalk: family, friends and lovers. Those who work in a funeral home are conditioned to conduct their daily life and monotonous work amongst darkness, absence, drama, and pain. This photographic series tries to reveal the daily process of of an Argentinean funeral home in a low-income neighborhood in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
