Cemetary Man

Photography by

Abney Park Cemetery in London is famous for being the first arboretum in Europe to be combined with a cemetery. It’s a very gorgeous and dodgy place with fallen tombs outcropping everywhere, squirrels and foxes around, and a beautiful landscape during every season. It’s known for all the cruising going on around the tombstones.I fancy cruising outdoors and I go there sometimes since moving to London from Jerusalem two years ago. This time I got naked and took some photos. Some men actually approached me but I was so into my own trip that I didn’t even notice them watching me through the trees. My inspiration was something like ‘a living body among the deads’. I set the camera up on a gravestone, turned it on ‘automatic’…and these are the results.
