Exploring Père Lachaise

by Abigail Russo

This project traces the ways in which tourism and death are entangled in Paris, France focusing specifically on the Cimetière Père Lachaise located on the East side of the city. Initial observations of the cemetery provoked questions about how death becomes something to be bought and sold, especially in a city with finite space as well as the links between celebrity and death.
