Davin Lavikka - All Saints Day 2004
Let me start by saying that I love cemetary photographs. I love the way that they look so old because of the tombs and crypts. In this photograph, Davin Lavikka has set up his camera to give the tombs and crypts a monumentalized feeling to them. I love that about this photograph. He also gave the tombs/crypts the effect that they are leaning towards each other. Either he knew or was lucky when he took this photograph because even the clouds are giving the image some contrast. I'm wondering what effect it would have on the photograph if he were to have used film with a bluish tint to it. Would it look cold? Would it have a creepier effect? This photograph makes me want to go to a cemetary for a photo shoot and see what I can do.
