Cameron Jamie: Front Lawn Funerals and Cemeteries


Cameron Jamie: Front Lawn Funerals and Cemeteries

America's decoration frenzy: graveyard cemeteries,ghosts, guillotines, skeletons in coffins, dismemberedbody parts, giant spiders and creatures turn up onthe front lawns and exteriors of suburban homes inAmerica every year. Families across the country decorateand stage their porches and gardenswith horror themedscenes to celebrate Halloween on October31st. In 1984, American artistCameron Jamie startedphotographing these front exteriors in his old neighborhoodin a suburban area of Los Angeles.Even while living full-time in France for the past fifteenyears, Jamie continued to travel back toLos Angeleseach year, just to continue this photographic ritual.One aspect of what makes these photographs extraordinaryis the fact that they were all shot during theday rather than at night, which changes the meaningand whole context of how we normally perceivethe horror and death culture surrounding Halloween.Thus,Front Lawn Funerals and Cemeteriesis nota book about Halloween, but rather about the opposingtensions of themes and imagery of death staged inthese daylight domestic environments, between feelingsof something at once very calm, humorous, violent,and uncanny.
