Church Street Art and Craft presents Ed Snyder’s cemetery photography show, Cemetery Photography, with a reception Saturday, October 15. Cemetery Photography is a show featuring works form his blog, The Cemetery Traveler, which he began in the 1990s “in order to share his decade-long experience with all things cemeterial.”

In this exhibition, the viewer is invited to join Snyder in his “dark tourism.” The attraction to death for most people is a primal force. We avoid it for the most part, but when confronted with images that suggest our own mortality, we find that we cannot look away. While Snyder’s photography can be experienced in a seemingly voyeuristic manner, there is no doubt that many of these images will haunt your dreams.

Church St. Art & Craft is an eclectic art space. We are a cooperative art gallery in the historic Mill Race Village in Mt. Holly, NJ. We are a custom frame shop, a place to gather and create art and a shop to purchase charming handmade gifts. For more information, visit Church St. Art and Craft.
