The End of History: Music

The End of History: Music

Documenting an Ongoing Process of Self-Destruction, continued.

For years I selected & saved interesting-looking obituary photos from the daily papers. That is, the average Joe and Jane whose portraiture styles are vanishing fast from memory. 
 
I’d read ’em, fold ’em, throw them into a box. Over the years those boxes collected thousands of obit portraits.

After saving them for unexplainable reasons I figured it was time to do something with the collection before it all goes out in a spree, much in the manner of the folks therein.

This is also a new media tribute to extant old media. Despite this being an obituary collection, print is not dead.


Unlike the bulk of the portraits in the obituary collection, the selections here are of famous musicians from different genres of music (from back when music was good.)
