Monumental Cemetery, Milan Italy

The Northstar Photography Gallery presents a collection of sensuous, fine art Pere Lachaise Cemeteryphotographs of cemetery and memorial art from around the world. Particular cemeteries include Pere Lachaise and Montparnasse Cemeteries in Paris France, Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah Georgia, Monumental Cemetery, in Milan Italy and Novodevichye Cemetery in Moscow Russia. The Northstar Photography Galleries explore the historical role of memorial and cemetery art in man's struggle to resolve issues of mortality, immortality, salvation, death and transcendence. One photography gallery offers poetry and commentary on mortality, salvation and transcendence. Of particular interest is the photography and accompanying essay on "Sensuality in Memorial Art" that delves into the extraordinary role sensuality and the classic nude figure has played in the art of the cemetery. Commentary on this photography gallery incorporates the thinking of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell and the role of myth and the unconscious in the fascinating symbols and meaning of the cemetery and memorial art. The "links Page" is a comprehensive survey of web sites on photography of cemetery, memorial and funerary art.

These galleries document and explore the powerful themes of man's eternal hope for salvation, renewal, transformation, eternal life and transcendence.
