Not Forgotten

These images show a burial ground for the poor in Colma, CA. The melancholy atmosphere is relieved by the rough beauty of the headstones and markers, mostly made from humble materials close at hand, and by the modest gifts that relatives or friends drop off. I shot these photos using a plastic camera, which produces a soft darkness around the edges. It seems to mirror the graceful fading away of these graves.
