16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
MEMENTO MORI #1
The photo is a part of a series of 6 shots called "Memento Mori" that focuses on the classic concept of the caducity of life and invites us to reflect the inevitability of passing time, in reference to the Latin expression.
Photos are composed on main colors of red: symbol of life and strenght in contrast with black: wich represents deepness, regression and death, white: that refers to the divine and light of the spirit which will remain beyond the end of matter; we can also find a touch of green in the leaves of the dried flowers, alluding to the symbolic meaning of resurrection.
