What you will see: Ed Snyder’s passion for “dark tourism” began in the 1990s. Visiting and exploring locations most people avoid has become his passion, and one of the subjects for which he is best known. Whether it involves climbing a fence into a locked cemetery or exploring and researching abandoned ones, he documents his (sometimes shocking) experiences on his blog, “The Cemetery Traveler.”

The attraction to death for most people is a primal force. We avoid it for the most part, but when confronted with images that suggest our own mortality, we find that we cannot look away. While his photography can be experienced in a seemingly voyeuristic manner, there is no doubt that many of these images will haunt your dreams.
