Photographer's Note

This is the cemetery of Wormbach, a tiny village in the "Rothaargebirge". All the graves are designed in the same way with little roofs and therefore it looks like a village in the village. In former times, over 1000 years ago,the coffins were carried to this place within a radius of 50 kilometers and more to bury them here in consecrated ground. It's one of the oldest christian cemeteries of Germany.
This place shows: In death all men are equal
