creepy and morbid, but kinda awesome

Dean Rogers' Death Drive exhibit consists of nine 6ft x 4ft photographs taken on the anniversary and at the exact time and position of famous car crash fatalities such as James Dean (above), Jackson Pollock and Princess Diana (below). i find these photos terribly sad and haunting, yet strangely comforting at the same time. it's as if the thought of what these eyes had last seen brings weight and humanity to the now phantasmic legends. read a fascinating review of the exhibition here.

You can close your eyes and just envision the happenings when viewing these. Yes, awesome!
