The Hardest Story I Can Never Tell

The Phoblographer:

First off, consider this: I’ve been a wedding photographer and photojournalist for a couple of years and I am currently a highly active street photographer. Getting the shot is no problem for me at this point in my progression. I’ve shot in big churches, city hall, backyards, wedding halls, mosques, you name it I’ve probably done it. But a funeral is different. During the ceremonies, everyone is silent. Everyone. And that means that the sound of the quietest camera will be heard and echo through the hall like the sound of a baby crying at your favorite Broadway musical. This was the first time I’ve even attempted funeral photography.

Als mein Opa gestorben ist habe ich nicht mal im Traum daran gedacht die Beerdigung zu fotografieren. Ich hätte es emotional nicht gekonnt.
