James Douglas Morrison at Père Lachaise.

James Douglas Morrison at Père Lachaise.

The mortal remains of James Douglas Morrison rest (in the grave) in front of the woman. Fuji GS645 Professional camera and Fuji NEOPAN 100 ISO 120mm film.

Jim is the most visited man in the world. Perhaps. He wrote some fantastic poems. Love Street is my personal favourite.

People flock to the cemetery at Père Lachaise in Paris all through the day. They’ve stationed a security guard to ensure that the crowds are well behaved. And a barricade prevents people from stepping on the grave. However, if you ask politely, the kind security chap lets you cross over the barricades.

  1. The grave looks good now ! I have seen it in 1994 and it was terrible. The grave was covered with poems on paper, with syringes and spoons, with hashish butts and junkies sitting all around on the other graves. After many complaints the city put up guardians and a fence to protect the other graves. When I came back in 2004 it looked like now, but I don’t see guardians. Are they still there ?
