These photographs by Senesi are punctuated by many small fires. The darker the light in the photographs, the greater the number of candles. It is Swedish custom, during the first Saturday in November, to light a candle for the past, in memory of one’s dead. In 2013, the occasion fell on All Saints’ Day, charging the day with dual symbolic significance. For a whole day, Senesi photographed the feast of candles in the picturesque cemetery of Skogskyrkogården, which has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List for its lush beauty. A social and travel reportage, a testimony of beauty and spirituality.
