Do you think it is creepy when people take pictures of their dead relatives?

I have never liked it when people took pictures at the funeral home.


Answer by  CarolynOsborne (2804)

For centuries people have sought to hold onto something from their relatives. Before photography, this took the form of death masks (made from plaster of Paris) and cuttings of hair. Death photography was a natural extension of this practice. For some people, having a picture of a dead relative might help them through the various stages of the grief process.

Not in the least! Once I lose a relative, I no longer view their body as being them. It is simply a corpse, no more and no less, so if people wish to photograph it then I have no objection.

No, I don't find it creepy. Perhaps they have no or few photos of their loved one, and they want something to remember them by.

No. It is much easier when they do not move.

Yeah its creepy. You dont want to look back at those memories. You want to see photos of them smiling not sleeping

It is not a good practice taking pictures of sad moments. Generally people take pictures during happy occassions. My personal openion is more or less similar to yours.
