Hillside Cemeteries of Hong Kong
on 16 November 2013
In a breathtaking display of spatial ingenuity, Hong Kong—well known for its packed, ever-upward landscape—has been developing stadium seating-like hillside cemeteries. Captured in all of their eerie magnificence by photographer Manuel Alvarez Diestro, each resting place is grim but grand. Diestro's photos present the super-dense burial sites among the vertically surging architecture of the city, proving that as the city blooms with life, it must also accommodate death.
