Poignant Pictures of Death Rituals

From National Geographic by Becky Little, Photos by Klaus Bo:

“For the past several years, photographer Klaus Bo has documented how different cultures deal with death in his ongoing Dead and Alive Project. His aim is to document at least 15 distinct death rituals, including ones from all five major religions (Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism)—a goal he admits will likely take “the rest of my life.”

Bo thinks his work will surprise people by showing them how other cultures deal with death.”
