Leonid Andreyev (via blackestdespondency)

(via old-glory)

"You, too, wander about the graveyard silent and pensive. Your ear is conscious of the gentle echoes of deep groans and tears, while your eyes rest on rich monuments, and modest wooden crosses; and the unmarked tombs of strangers, covering their dead, who were strangers when living, unmarked, unobserved. And you read the inscriptions on the monuments, and all these people who have disappeared from the world rise up in your imagination. You see them young, laughing, loving; you see them hale, loquacious, insolently confident in the endlessness of life.And they are dead."

F. Holland Day, The Seven Last Words, 1898

Day portrays himself as the dying Christ in a series of seven prints, five of which are shown above. Each photograph represents one of the last phrases spoken by Christ:

Father forgive them they know not what they do.
Woman behold thy son: Son thy mother.
I thirst.
Into thy hands I commend my spirit.
It is finished.
