Darkness in the Garden of Angels

Shot amongst the Gothic looking surrounds of Ohlsdorf Cemetery, the worlds largest non military cemetery in Humburg, in the wide-reaching graveyard, Julia Kiecksee‘s shoot Garden of Angels taps into both the haunting mood of the place and the sense of time passing that manifests in the crumbling stone and fading inscriptions, as well as the contrasts of living beauty and sleeping death. Brilliantly styled by Irina Skladkowski in bridal whites and gothic blacks, and stunningly shot by Kiecksee in well-chosen places across the grounds, it’s a shoot worth viewing in full.
