St. James The Fisherman Episcopal Church in Islamorada
Whatever your faith there is comfort in traditions that care for us as humans whether it’s the beginning of a life or the end of one. We hold tightly on to the human need to re-affirm our belonging, in birth and ind death.
I’ve filmed and photographed my share of them in the last year. They leave a sense of urgency in my mind. I strive to do better following a funeral.
We were asked to make a film and a photographic documentary of a funeral. It is impossible to stay un-involved. In my mind, at least. I love to immerse myself deeply into the beleifs of people. I am always absolutely fascinated by them. We all receive great emotional comfort from life & death traditions.
I am not sure of my own. Being from such diverse background. I know I will follow my parents’ example and find my way to a woodland someplace.
