The story
behind that picture
"Sunrise at Cimetiere du Pere Lauchaise"

By Thorsten von Overgaard

I went to find the grave of Jim Morrison of The Doors at the famous graveyard in Paris, Cimetière du Père Lachaise.

I had rented an apartment close to the graveyard, thinking I would want to spend somen hours or days explore it.

While facinating, I didn't spend that much time in the end. The most famous grave, the one of Jim Morrison of The Doors turned out to be not that photogenic.

However, I did stumble upon some beautiful moments of light.

There's something about gravestones. I find myself liking to wander through graveyards in Venice, Los Angeles, Berlin, Kyoto, and this one in Paris, wondering about the thoughts that must have gone through somebody's mind when they seemed to have planned an extravagant departure from this life - one last attempt to show off and be rememeberd. What do they believe happens after death? What are they trying to tell us living with their last statements in stone?

I don't think there is any right answer, but I do find that graveyeards are a great excuse to think about one's own life and relation to others.

I didn't think much of this photograph when I did it, after all it wasn't on my list for the day. But looking into my archive years later, I really like this photograph.

My Largest Prints - The 72" Aluboard Print is an Art Statement

My largest prints are usually five to six feet tall (72 inches/180cm); "stand-alone prints" made on glossy photo paper (c-print) that is laminated on 3mm aluboard aluminum plates (also known as “The Rolls Royce of photo printing”). The aluboard has mountings and distance bricks on the back, so they are ready to hang with just two screws on the wall. It's a format that doesn't require a frame, and it just floats half an inch or so from the wall. I like this type of photo because it's impressive, it's a statement, and the photo dominates and sets the tone for the room, hallway or space it hangs in.

         
         

Exhibition prints


The Salzburg Collection is a series of 68 prints from the Leica Galerie Salzburg exhibition.

Raffles-Collection Singapore is a series of large 72" prints from the exhibition "I Am Here" .

 


My smallest size print here, shown the way I usually have prints framed.

My smallest prints are 4 x 6 inches

Sometimes I just want to have a photo because I like it. I am not trying to fill a space on a wall, and I am not running a gallery or a museum. In fact, I am not even a collector. I am just gathering things I like; which is original art that is personalized by the artist (usually signed and/or given to me as a gift). In my home I have prints of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stanley Cubrick, Peter Turnley, Jan Grarup, Paul Wolff, Helmut Newton and many others. Many of them are relatively small prints that can fit on a relatively small wall section, as an integrated part of my home. I made this "junior collector size" of 4.25 x 5.5 inches available because it gives many people the possibility to have one or more of my photos at a very reasonable price, and it happens to be a size I like myself. They can even stand on a desktop, and I think they are awesome.
