Abrupt or violent death 
  
Images selected by
Alan Griffiths
 

Curatorial note
 
As the online exhibition on issues related to death continues to expand I've decided to split it into two distinct but related parts. This part covers violent death and the abruptness of passing and there is now a separate exhibition on nineteenth century post-mortem photography.
