This photograph is from a collection of images that depicts our evolving culture of death in America, how we emotionally, spiritually, and practically experience mourning, grief, and loss. Our social and cultural environments impact and shape our responses to death and form the basis of traditional rituals as shown in this picture of three women having a picnic in a cemetery in memory of their loved ones.
