Brace yourself—this museum of death is no walk in the park! Think you know all about haunted houses? Prepare to be shocked by post mortem photographs that are brimming with life and showcase the sensuality of the human body, walking the thin line between life and death.
With a sensitive eye and a profound sense of respect, Jack Burman painstakingly photographs human remains and documents their preservation. His ongoing series The Dead, thirty years in the making, puts forward a compelling concrete vision of human death. Through books and major exhibits, his photographs have made waves in
Canada and internationally. In 2011, he was part of the Montreal Mois de la photo (now Momenta).
