Cemeteries are the important parts of our cultural heritage. They tell of past generations living conditions and livelihood, how they wanted to remember their dead and how to use the cemetery.
Much has happened to the cemeteries during the past 200 years. They have gone from being overgrown meadows with raked gravel blocks to be severely pruned lawns with gravestones in straight rows.
Here I present a selection of the gravestones that I have collected through the years
Enjoy the journey
Johan Arbogast Keller
I have always been fascinated by cemeteries and above all the old tombstones. a walk on an unknown cemetery the imagination. Looking at the names and dates, and births and deaths, and imagine relationships between people. One can also see the tomb keepers as works of art, think about different styles ... you can also see the cemetery as the garden and park. Tombstones are symbols of feelings, thoughts and ideas of our own time
