This gravestone marks the last resting place of a woman named Jane in the small burying ground of Falmouth's Church of King Charles the Martyr. I moved close to the stone to abstract it, and intensify its sense of antiquity. Its rough texture shows us how the passage of time has taken its toll on the stone. I also cropped out much of the stone’s faded message, and tilted the stone in my frame to make it seem even more unstable and vulnerable. I hope this image conveys the point that after hundreds of years the memory of “Jane – the wife of…” still lingers in the consciousness of the town of Falmouth. Do you think it does? Let us know if this picture works, or doesn’t work for you. I’d be delighted to respond.
