Circles and Crosses was created in 2015 as a "3x3" of nine photographs and is based on shots taken in January 2014 at La Recoleta Cemetary where Evita Peron is interred (Buenos Aires, Argentina).

I was struck upon reviewing the photographs by the prevalent symbolic use of both the circle and the cross.  Some are depicted here -- three of the circles also encircle crosses.  While the symbolism of Christianity of the cross is clear, what is symbolized by the circle?  A simple architectural feature, or more?  The cycle of life?  The womb, and hence from circle to cross, birth to death?  Or perhaps heaven -- the heavens seen from a flat plain or from the ocean are but a circle.
