The subject matter in Murray Ballard’s current project, The Prospect of Immortality, an investigation into cryonics, is incredibly fascinating. Ballard’s work about the technology used in preserving the dead - for possible revival in the future, starts off with a quote from The Impossible Dream by Charles Platt
“The dream of escaping mortality has tantalized humanity for thousands of years. It occurs in all primitive cultures and modern religions… Cleary, there is a natural human yearning to transcend the limits imposed on us by our physical form.” Charles Platt, The Impossible Dream
Murray Ballard is a documentary photographer based in Brighton, UK.
