England - London - Multiple high street memorials.
Memorials have been placed where a young man called 'Marurice' died on the A215 Walworth Road in London, England, UK. Were we to ignore this place where someone's life ended, the victim would just be an anonymous statistic but flowers are left to die too and touching poems and dedications are written by family and loved-ones. One read: “Top fella/Don't worry, I'll look after your sisters/May you and your family find true justive so your soul may rest in Peace.” From a project about makeshift shrines: Britons have long installed memorials in the landscape: Statues and monuments to war heroes, Princesses and the socially privileged. But nowadays we lay wreaths to those who die suddenly - ordinary folk killed as pedestrians, as drivers or by alcohol, all celebrated on our roadsides and in cities with simple, haunting roadside remberences.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
