Asked on Nov 17, 2021

Are there any issues with photographing a famous persons grave and producing artwork from it?

I want to photograph Jack Kerouacs grave in Lowell MA. I plan to photograph it every day for a year and have a show and book produced. Are there issues with copyright of the grave site? Are there issues with the City of Lowell? Are there issues with the Kerouac estate?

I suggest you get a release from both the estate of Jack Kerouac and the City of Lowell.
