Mapping 2………

Continuing my experimentation with the Death in the Landscape photographs.  I am still looking at mapping the photographs although I am not sure how to present them.  This is one way I am looking at.  I am trying to correlate the relationship between the photograph, the location and the landscape.  Whether to do it seperately or merged like these photographs.  As I explore them more I come across more themes, ie, the way we travel now, how we mourn, how the public perceive these memorials.    I feel sadness when I see them, knowing that a family has lost someone they love.  Who will remember them in years to come as a new generation travels the roads.  Close by to where I live some young lads lost their life on a bend.  I do not know who they were, it was when I was a baby, but if I pass the spot with my mam she always mentions it.  There is no memorial there but it is still a memory for some people.  How long will that last when those who were alive when it happened are gone?  Will someone who is searching for their ancestry visit the spot where their relatives died?
