Photographing Death: Tragedies Turned Into Art
As I started to get into photography I’ve always been curious about the many different fields and who would want to shoot them. Sara Sudhoff has an interesting outlook on death and how we are affected by it, so she decided to exploit that interest through photography. Filmmakers Mark and Angela Walley follow photographer Sara Sudhoff as she works on her series titled At the Hour of Our Death. In the series Sudhoff creates large-scale color photographs of stained fabrics from trauma scenes and discusses the invisibility of death in our culture. It definitely takes a certain kind of person to be able to photograph this type of work. I’m not sure if it is beautiful that she is able to turn these tragedies into art, or if it is slightly weird. What do you think?
