I used to work at Mt Carmel Catholic Cemetery in El Paso, Texas. That was, by far, my most favourite job. I miss it. While working there, I discovered a feeling of peace, a calmness that I’ve never experienced before. I honestly believe this job, and what I felt while working there, led me to seek out both God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Ever since working at Mt Carmel, photographing cemeteries has held a special place in my body of work – right behind Churches.
As you virtually travel through Evergreen Cemetery, Concordia and El Paso’s Jewish Cemetery, I hope you will be moved to visit these graveyards yourself and discover that peace and calm I’ve come to find.
