The Mattia Mognetti ‘Graveyard People’ portrait series captures burial shrines in high contrast photographs that rely on a heightened manipulation of light and shadow effects.

These striking portraits are showcased through the photographer’s signature visual aesthetic of black-and-white and exude a gloomy and sinister air. Mognetti captures detailed sculptural monuments in Monumentale, the historical cemetery in Milan. This emotive portrait series explores major themes of life and death through dramatic visuals of religious and mythical icons that have been intricately carved out of a stone medium.

The Mattia Mognetti ‘Graveyard People’ portrait series is as striking as its photographic site, a place that the photographer names as ‘one of the quietest and most inspiring places on earth’.
