Cristina Burns
 
These remarkable photographs are by Italian artist Cristina Burns, who clearly has a knack for a saccharine brand of thanatopsis (that’s right, I went straight to “thanatopsis”). They’re part of her “Through the Mirror” series, which is obviously a reference to Lewis Carroll (there’s even a Queen of Hearts), but not all of the photos reference that, some of the imagery draws from the Easter Bunny, Sleeping Beauty, or general mythology. Burns’ wonderful, sickly-sweet dioramas, for lack of a better word, feature all manner of flowers, candy, birds, eggs, hearts, and who knows what else.

How original, to present a world of death entirely in pastels…...
