The Silent Cities Project

Some people think I have the coolest job ever - or the strangest! I find cemeteries fascinating; they are filled with beautiful monuments and history. I‘ve always enjoyed photography but my obsession with cemeteries began as a child when I visited family graves with my parents. Whilst the adults arranged flowers I would wander off and look around in amazement at all the angels, doves and crosses. Sadly many graves are now crumbling; burial space is running out and graveyards are being reclaimed by local authorities or nature. In 2006 I set up the Silent Cities Project, taking photographs of many amazing memorials so that future generations can see what they looked like and I also became involved with their restoration. As an author and freelance journalist, I write for national newspapers and magazines about places of eternal rest and grave symbolism and have produced my own Silent Cities series of books.

As a photographer my work is used for book, album covers and advertising. I have a stock library of thousands of images including animals, birds, street art, abandoned buildings and architecture. I can also be booked for photographic assignments.

I am a an actress and Victorian-style model available for personal appearances, events, etc. I can provide my own costumes if required. Please note if the job or publication is not for charity or a non-profit organisation fees may apply.

As ‘Ink Loving Memory’ I advise on memorial tattoos and tattoo design and can supply photos for artwork.

Please e mail for further details, bookings, interviews, photography or acting.  Please note Jeane is currently fully booked until September 2014.
