Wherein lies the beauty of the dark image? What is the attraction of the dark tourist attraction and, moreover, the disposition and practice of the dark tourist away from and upon return home? Dark Tourism: The Beauty in Death is a collection of photographs captured in places associated with death and tragedy around the world, where tourists visit with varying motivations from being reminded of how fragile life is, a prompt that life is precious and bad things happen so we need to make the most out of our lives.
