Photographer's Note

All Saints' Day is coming in a few days and this has made me return to one of my favourite subjects- cementaries. It's not some dark fascination with death that makes me come back to it, but belief that the dead are not gone, and don't want to be forgotten.

I'm starting this short series with a photo from a Muslim cementary and I'm doing it on purpose: All Saints' Day is, technically speaking, a Christian celebration, but I think that the dead just don't see the difference anymore...This is one of the graves at a small cementary by the tomb of Suleyman the Great.
