Visiting lost loved ones at graveyards is a deeply personal matter, one that is captured beautifully in the photo series titled Homage by Cally Whitham, a photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand, who is known for her Dwell III series. Instead of shooting the actual visitors, however, she focuses on what they leave behind as a token of remembrance. In this case, she focuses solely on artificial flowers.

Dark and soft, the images making up Homage by Cally Whitham could easily pass for paintings. In a way, they will live just as long. Although fake flowers may seem inconsiderate, they last indefinitely longer than real plants and retain its beauty. Of course, the irony will not be lost on some.
