Bonaventure Cemetery, GA in Film

Steeped in rich history dating back to 1846 and immersed in lush scenery, Bonaventure Cemetery in Georgia, located just outside of Savannah, is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever visited. The cemetery breathes and lives the Southern Gothic aesthetic through its swaying Spanish moss, giant oak trees, the air of the supernatural. It is undeniably a liminal space, if there ever was one.

Blending a digital and an analogues technique, the photos were taken with a digital camera and a manual Helios 44-2 lens. I’m forever grateful to my photographer friends who had taught me this technique because it has been my favorite way to shoot for years now. I have also recently been immensely inspired by Briscoe Park’s photography on Twitter, especially their work from the South. Briscoe Park’s photos tell almost a complete story and are perfectly, hauntingly beautiful. I highly recommend checking out their work.
