Common Grave is a series of urban landscape photographs made in Mexico City’s common grave. The work explores mortality, and the coexistence of life and death. Established in 1905, the common grave functions as a mass burial site for corpses of the indigent and unidentified. Centrally located within the metropolis, it is part of the Panteón Civil de Dolores, the city’s largest cemetery.” - Janelle Lynch
