The Departed - Series

'07 & '11

The all above-ground vaults of the famous La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina offer seemingly endless views into the mausoleum and crypts of Argentina's notable and affluent citizens.

Despite over 50 caretakers who maintain over 50 tombs each, many tombs surviving families have ceased to pay the annual maintenance fee and thus are not cared for. This creates a wide range of views into the above ground vaults ranging from the pristine to completely decrepit.

Though I'm fascinated by the typography on the tombs - out of respect I omitted any shots that reveal the names of the dead. From trips in 2007 and 2011 to Buenos Aires, Argentina
