Every since I first visited in my first year in London, it’s always been a dream of mine to return and photograph Highgate Cemetery in the snow.

The west cemetery in Highgate is one of the most exciting, exotic, historic, natural, unnatural beauties in the city of London. Built in 1839 as one of the “Magnificent Seven”, seven massive cemeteries surrounding the city of London; it was built in reaction to many problems that were occurring in the growing city of London’s bursting overstocked local church cemeteries. It fast became a central important part of the Victorian London fabric, a place which represented class and religion and social status of both the living and the dead in Victorian London.
