Lee-Locke Tombstone

Lee-Locke Tombstone Here’s another Photo Elective shot I took in South Jersey back in 1982. My camera was focused and my mind fixed upon the subject of death and decay because I was a horror film fanatic at the time, and I thought it would be arty. Recently I posted photos of junked cars. Today’s post has me wandering around what I believe to be the  Green Cemetery in Deptford Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey.

The Photo Elective

Back in the 1980s, I went to art school, and I along with all of the other illustration majors were required to take a minor course in photography. We had to shoot the photos as well as process the negatives and make prints. I don’t recall what the particulars of the class assignments were although I can tell from looking at the negatives which were the assignments and which ones were shot just to finish off a roll. The shots to finish a roll are a lot more interesting. While my fellow students mostly resided and shot their photographs in the vibrant metropolis of Philadelphia, I lived and did most of my shooting in and around the staid and solid small town of Westville, New Jersey.
