The Sedlec Ossuary at Kutna Hora, Czech Republic features the incredibly intricate bone arrangements of woodcarver František Rint. In 1870 he was given the task of bringing order to thousands of bones exhumed from the chapel’s cemetery during the 14-1500s due to construction and to make room for new burials.

I took these images on a trip there in 2011 and the incredible atmosphere and stunning impact of the space have left a long-lasting impression and remain a source of inspiration to this day.
