Thanatos

Thanatos Photos of the DeadIf funeral photos and imagery of lifeless people is your thing then this will be a goldmine site for you. There are a lot of enthusiastic people on the forums who follow and keep up to date postings on death-associated photos. A lot of the site is for members only but don’t let that discourage you, the forum has oodles going on. There are a few sample galleries including medical imagery, death masks and memento mori. It’s not for the faint hearted and I’d anticipate a lot of people to feel melancholy when viewing the numerous mourners but there is a beauty in death and respect. I never really knew a lot about the past photos of death until I watched the extras on Haunting in Connecticut which explains a lot, if you get a chance to watch those I recommend that you do.. very fascinating.
