Margareta Kern

Margareta Kern has documented women in Croatioa, Bosnia and Herzgovina who have been making clothes in which they want to be buried.  This is not an established custom or tradition, she heard of it while in her mother's dress shop.  Just a small population of women are doing this, but she traveled around the area and managed to photograph and interview many of them.   
This is such a beautiful project to consider, and the images are no less amazing to me.
