Photographs Made from Human Ashes

Posted on 23 August 2007 Tags: Photography

This is one you have to see to believe. This artist, Bill Fink, makes portraits of people – out of the people themselves. So instead of having Grandma’s ashes on the mantle you can hang her on the wall. The video shows how he’s created photo prints from ashes of the dead. Kind of cool but creepy. I’m guessing it’s similar to carbon printing used by many alternative process photographers. There’s another video on his site,, where it looks like he’s creating prints out of all kinds of different stuff.

    What? That’s nuts. I bet there’s a lot of people who would pay for portraits of their pets. How does it work though?
