The Belle Morte Collaborative

Working together as the Belle Morte Collective, Larassa Kabel and Ben Easter have been creating performance based photographs for the Death in the Family series since the first one appeared in Juxtapoz Magazine in 2015. Based in the tradition of Victorian post-mortem photography, this work critically examines the artificial division humans make between themselves and the rest of nature. Using careful aesthetic choices and physical tenderness, the photographs democratize grief across species and transform each animal into a unique individual worthy of memorialization.
