With the recent death of singer Amy Winehouse at the age of 27, the bizarre trend of rock stars and musicians in general dying at that age continues. The 27 Club is a group of rockers, started by the deaths of Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix, who all passed away at 27.
Dead: April 5, 1994, 27 years and 44 days, ruled as suicide by shotgun
Dead Horse Bay was once known as Barren Island. It is located on a beach near New York City. Today the beach is full of large amounts of undesirable things such as pieces of metal and plastic, broken telephones, worn out shoes, discarded toys and bottles, pieces of coal and other garbage that are continually showing up on the beach and in the ocean. At one time the bones of dead horses that had outlived their usefulness were dumped in the bay much like a cemetery. Today the beach reminds everyone who sees it as doomsday.
Although it looks an awful lot like a road, it is not.
Photographer Tom Phillips has created a unique series of shots, which he called “The Dead Photos”. On these photos, we can see dead men on the background of completely different landscapes. And the more the life on photos seems mundane, the more tragic seems the upside-down body lying on the pavement, in the desert or in the pool.
