Bio Photo "How you die is more important than how you live"


Sometimes it's the things that aren't there -- for instance, the graves that were purposely erased to remove memory that make the biggest impact.

You can't help but to be moved by what is not there...
You shouldn't have to use imagination to uncover historical layers.

A 'Death Camera' is desensitized to all the horrors the profession entails.

You can tell almost everything about a person by just knowing where they were born and how they died.

'Cryptic-Social Photography' is styled towards destroying all legends as an ultimate point in life by finishing them off in death and resurrecting those buried in unmarked graves or unknown locations after authorities’ efforts to hide the burial sites backfires on them.

The examples of the former unknown grave sites of Benito Mussolini & Ernesto 'Che' Guevara are reminders of this.

The vitality of a grave's location rapidly becomes a matter of intense interest in that as long as the grave doesn’t exist, a corpse that is nowhere is everywhere., which is the case with Alexander the Great, Scipio Africanus, Genghis Khan, Crazy Horse, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, and Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say according to the Quaker belief that death equalizes everyone, graves and stones can be unmarked, such as the graves of Jack London & Jacob Riis.

A grave, such as Titian, is interred in the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, lying near his own famous painting, the Madonna di Ca' Pesaro. No memorial marked his grave. Much later the Austrian rulers of Venice commissioned Antonio Canova to sculpt a large monument.

Yet there are those like Woody Guthrie who choose to be cremated and are neither.

Leading an interesting life does not mean anything if you do not have an interesting death.

“How you die, when you die, where you die, and why you die, determines how you lived"

Nice photo, but it's not Jimmy The Gent. 1) His middle initial was 'J' not 'A' 2) He was born in 1931, not 1942 3) He's in the ground, not in a crypt. His location at St.Charles is Section 24 Row HH Grave 249.

RE: Mr. Roger's Grave
From what we remember, we knew it was a mausoleum, and drove around looking for Rogers. Then as we passed this mausoleum, there were graves that caught our eye...possibly McFeely, and checked out the mausoleum, and hurray!

Would it be possible for you to find my grandmother's grave and photograph and post her headstone on this website? She is buried in Mt. Hebron cemetery in Flushing but I do not have any more information. Thank you very much for any help you can give me.

Ultra Violet is buried somewhere in Saint Egreve, France. 2 cemeteries come up in a google search: Saint Roch Cemetery and Cemetery du Grand Sablon. I'm not sure which one she is in.

Prokesh headstones
I see that my great grandfather, Jacob Prokesh, is listed on Find a Grave at Mount Hebron cemetery. I wasn't certain where he was buried, but the name and date of birth are the same as my Jacob Process and he did live in NY and had a daughter on Long Island so I am assuming this is him. His wife's name was Anna Rose Berkowitz Process, and I see an Anna Berkowitz at that cemetery, but the date of her death shown isn't quite what I have--but I could be wrong.

I would very much appreciate seeing photos of both stones to help me figure out if these two people are actually from my family.

I appreciate the effort you put into this and I understand that winter is not the ideal time to stroll around cemeteries, but when you do get a chance and if you are still doing this, that would be wonderful.

Thank you so much.

Would you be so kind as to include your wonderful photos of the Bernard Baruch grave area at his daughter's site as well---the bench and distance shots would be a welcome addition to her memorial. Thank you.
