Photography: James Day shoots handsome old fellas in their funeral gear

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

There are few subjects I can scour my brain for that photographer James Day hasn’t turned his camera to; his portfolio boasts a massive amount of work of a quality which is seldom seen, and in that goldmine his portraits are among the best and weirdest bits of all. My favourite set is a collection of shots of the most handsome old gentlemen I’ve ever laid eyes on, suited and booted in their finest black tie and funeral gear. Complete with buttonholes and respectfully grief-stricken faces, the series has drama, sober style and a good dollop of eccentricity to boot.
