Sarah Sudhoff

Sarah Sudhoff’s ‘At the hour of our death’ is a fascinating  series of photographs that force us to acknowledge the real facts of death. Death is an inevitable part of our lives no different really from our births but we no longer have the reality of death as a part of our lives, strangers are employed to clean up, prepare the body. People don’t always view a body and often if they do the body has been embalmed and made ready for a viewing removing all traces of the real facts of death.

These photographs are taken as close up details of the stains left after a death on the fabric, bedding or clothing near the deceased. A tiny detail but printed as large scale colour photographs. The scale adds to the enforcement and determination to make us look.
