  1. You can see this as cruel or you can see the beauty of the photograph. I prefer to see the beauty than to see it as cruel or bad taste. I understand your reaction. You are entitled to it. I just think it’s a photo that makes you think a lot about life and death since she was so young and beautiful plus the photo is esthetically almost perfect. BTW the family has authorised the photo in Life and even supplied the photography of her alive. Sorry if it troubles or disgust you. It wasn’t mean to provoque that reaction.
