Annals of the dead (4).... Johannisfriedhof Dresden

Unlike the majority of other German cemeteries, the Johannisfriedhof in Dresden boasts of a lot of impressive grave monuments which are testimonies of the fact that this once was one of Germany's richest cities
A sculpturer's grave...
The images of respectable dead men are so serious that they seem to contradict the statements of love and affection left by the descendants
But the most remarkable is this grave, which actually features the relief of a half-naked woman
And I discovered that there actually is a kind of cemetery tourism of people travelling to cities to look and collect photos of graves of famous people.
