David Maisel





More amazing photographs from this very talented
photographer. These are canisters of cremated 
remains of psychiatric patients. The natural minerals 
in the ashes have reacted with the metal to create these
beautiful colours which David has captured beautifully.
WoW!

How are the minerals collected on the cans? Are these cans currently on display?.

Read about this in National Geographic.

Then stole the name of the book for my blog.
