Wonford St. James has come up with a unique way to capture his vacation time. The subject of all his photos surround the theme of death. He playfully models stiffly in various scenes such as underneath a car, immobile and lifeless.

The photos are disturbingly haunting. On his site ‘The Dead Photos,’ Wonford St. James states, "Meantime we shall express our darker purpose [...} Unburthen’d crawl toward death."

Wonford St. James’ photography series is a must-see with its unique concept and harrowing images.

Implications - People are obsessed with death. The idea of "living to die" is very present in societies today as some perceive the current world lived in as a purgatory or hell. By showing death throughout images, people will see the inner peace inside the concept and be intrigued by what happened to the soul post-mortem.
