Tokyo photographer Izima Kaoru has built his reputation on idealizing death.  His “Landscapes With A Corpse” continues the trend, featuring models in what would be their perfect obituary vignettes. 

While there’s more than a little indulgence in these shots – Kaoru invited his models to don their designer of choice in their funereal photo – the overall impression is provocative on a deeper level.  In these images one may bear witness, not only to the final outfit, but to the final moment.  To Kaoru’s credit, the latter takes precedence over the former, thereby allowing one to reflect on what that inevitable moment what look like.

There is also something extremely appealing about having the power to manifest that moment, and, ostensibly, your designer duds might be the next best thing.  I guess the morbidly Kaoru-esque moral could be: dress the way you want to be found?
