    Using a unique process called Metalwork Photography™, Andrew Levitas transfers his photographs into transparencies that are then melted onto hand-detailed metal sheets. The result is an illuminating and reflective surface, as seen in this haunting image of Cappella Dei Morti. Located in Italy, the Cappella Dei Morti is the spiritual resting place of Roman monks, where their remains stand vigil as gatekeepers to the afterlife. For having been prepared in such a meticulous manner, Levitas’s final image pays homage to the sacred ground and captures its unique nature.
