Rosehill Cemetery is a Victorian era cemetery on the North Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA, and at 350 acres (1.4 km2), is the largest cemetery in the City of Chicago. The name "Rosehill" resulted from a City Clerk's error – the area was previously called "Roe's Hill", named for nearby farmer Hiram Roe. He refused to sell his land to the city until it was promised that the cemetery be named in his honor.
I have been visiting the cemetery throughout the years, mainly to take still photos.
During the months of June and July I decided to shoot some video there, mainly of the many statues. The cemetery is mostly covered by trees, which helped in dealing with the extreme heat that we have been having this summer (2012.)
Rosehill is a great place for a quiet walk, to escape the speed of city life and forget about everyday worries. Easy to forget that it is in fact located right in the city.
Here is the product of all those trips, hopefully you will enjoy it.
All the footage was shot with an iPhone, some of it using an Olloclip lens and various homemade devices for added camera movement.
