Famous Gravesites
Portraits

These are 75 famous gravesites and memorials. I have visited and photographed each one over the last 30 years. I have chosen these because they are unique and interesting. Sometimes, I have photographed the memorial instead of the grave because the person has been cremated and the ashes scattered or because the memorial is more spectacular than the burial site. Interestingly, after research, I learned that the heads on Easter Island, the Arc de Triomphe, the Great Wall of China and Stonehenge have graves beneath them. Also, the Berlin wall was the scene of hundreds of deaths; when the Yangtze river was flooded many things were immediately relegated to a watery grave and the thunderbolt rollercoaster lay in a fenced off field before it was dismantled.
