I decided to visit “Cimitero Monumentale di Staglieno” (Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno - Genoa - Italy) to see the sculpture which became famous when it was used in the cover of “Closer” by Joy Division, back in 1980.
But I still didn’t know that the Cemetery is a huge place, with thousands sculptures, and most of them didn’t even have the author’s name indicated.
So I learned that many historical personalities visited this place, including Friedrich Nietzsche, Oscar Wilde, the Empress Elisabeth of Austria (the famous Sissi), Dom Pedro I and Dom Pedro II, Brazil's emperors, artists, literary men philosophers, travelers, etc.
In this edition I used and abused of contranst and brightness to create a dark atmosphere in my photosl. For me it is so good, what do you think about it?
