The funeral offices in Greece, numerous and fully integrated in modern commercialized society, look at first sight like any company with legal action and public exposure. However these “shops” are differentiated mainly on the symbolic level, as a sort of ultimate boundary between the society of the living and the realm of the dead, reflected in their functional and aesthetical organization. This photographic investigation is also focusing on people working in the funeral offices and on the atypical conditions of their work, mostly at the limits of social prejudice and superstition, in a daily context of partial isolation and endless wait.
