About the exhibit

This exhibit features selected photographs from some interesting Oregon cemeteries. The images offer a glimpse at the wide range of ways that people represent themselves and their loved ones in death. The development of cemeteries mirrors larger societal trends about how the living relate to the dead. Of course, this exhibit is just a taste of some of the thousands of cemeteries in the state. Still, it shows cemeteries in diverse settings all around Oregon — from farmland to deserts to mountains.
