These photos are from the Silver Terrace Cemetery in Virginia City, Nevada. After photographing inside the cemetery, on one of my visits I decided to walk outside the fence and see if there were any good angles looking in. It’s a large complex, with mines and many tailings nearby. Coming around the far side, I found several patches of deer bones. I believe they are deer because some of the leg bones still had hooves attached. I thought it was really interesting to consider the casual way the deer bones were strewn around compared with the elaborate internments inside the cemetery.
Some of my contact sheets:
Did you know bones can be transparent?
