Exploring the mysterious notion of death, photographer Bjørn Haldorsen takes us on a journey in a funeral home in his haunting death photo series.

Capturing the moment when the dead are laid to rest in the Evergreen funeral home in Brooklyn, the 'Evergreen' series gives the idea of death and finality (of our lives and bodies) a very tangible look. The honest and sentimental death photo series doesn't show us the whole body, just little details that capture it more powerfully.

The photographer's poignant portraits show us how to most of us death is a scary thing that we try not to think about, while there are those who work with the dead every single day. It also gives us a visual of life after death.
