These Images where taken for a reportage on the funeral business in Austria. I know that many people who get in touch with the subject are feeling uncomfortable. But when I had the opportunity to get a closer l look behind the final curtain, the complete opposite appeared to me. Sure, when you are surrounded by numerous coffins and look into a bucket of artificial hip joints, it won‘t put a smile on your face, but the moment when the chamber door opens and the combustions starts is a truly lasting memory I don‘t want to miss. No gruesome impressions whatsoever. It‘s just a graceful way to leave for good.
