Roadkill Memorials

This series of photographs by US based photographer Emma Kisiel is harrowing yet ever so beautiful.

At Rest is a photographic series depicting roadkill on American highways and addressing our human fear of confronting death and viewing the dead. My images draw attention to the fact that, while man has a vast impact on animal and natural life, the dominant religion in America insists that animals do not have a place in Heaven and are, therefore, of little value in our society.
