photography and film – facts, ideas, values

“I’m not afraid of dying. Dyings’ alright. It’s the next day, you’re so stiff.”




The fear of death is intransitive at the top of this page was something I heard while listening to the radio with half an ear. Radio was fine: my half ear. Why it was that that sentence suddenly entered consciousness while all the rest passed me by, I don’t know. I thought for a moment I was listening to a statement about death but it was something about the strangeness of language.

Never Say Die: Why We Can’t Imagine Death, is, however, about death.
