A photograph a day for one year

Jack Kerouac is buried in Edson Cemetery in Lowell, MA, his hometown and birthplace. 

The grave is at the intersection of 7th Ave and Lincoln Ave.

This project has documented the grave site and the objects left as offerings – pens, pencils, bottles of booze, rosary beads – and most important, personal messages including journals, published books, photographs, and notes.

As the items changed, the photographs recorded the grave site every day of 2022, the 100th anniversary of Kerouac’s birth.
