Kensal Green Cemetery Walk - A Recap!

2010-07-28 2

Another one of our store regulars took control and invited us (and others) for an anlogue exploration of Kensal Green Cemetery!

Natalie Wells may seem like a hardcore blood drinking girl but in fact she is the most well-spoken regular at the Lomography Gallery Store London

She also doesn’t even drink alcohol!

She decided to organise a lomowalk and took some lucky workshop participants to a cemetery! Nothing can be more analogue than death can it?

In her words:

After meeting at LGS London and giving a brief history of Kensal Green Cemetery we made our way there in the blazing heat.
It is hard not to wear an expression of awe as you first walk into the cemetery. Mausolems and crumbling headstones are not the sort of thing most people see every day. The group wasted no time in getting started, it’s understandable, this cemetery is a Lomographers dream. Grand and decaying, it really lends itself to analogue photography.

We first walked around shooting some of the more forgotten graves and decrepit mausoleums before making our way to the majestic but tired Anglican Chapel; with its long arched corridors and peeling layers of paint. We then moved on to look at more significant memorials, either loaded with symbolism, notable occupants or simply showing memorial trends of the era.

Kensal Green Cemetery is massive, we only had time to see the main areas of it, but I do urge people to set aside a whole day to discover more of it. Many of these headstones and mausoleums are decaying very quickly due to acid in rain, time and sadly vandalism. Although the Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery do an excellent job in saving and maintaining some, not all will survive. This knowledge makes every photo taken there a little more precious and the experience of being there all the more meaningful.

Our whole group had a wonderful time, I know many will return with cameras in hand. I’d like to thank LGS London for giving me the chance to share one of my favourite places in London with fellow Lomographers, it really was a lovely day.
