"Art is Dead | Death is Art"
Imago Mortis was distilled in the mind of Sean M. Palfrey in 2007, originally as a range of Occult/Gothic/Heavy Metal themed t-shirts that drew upon influences such as Medieval Danse Macabre woodcuts, Renaissance Anatomical Sketches, and Tarot cards filtering them through the styles of 1980's Gothic Rock and Heavy Metal merchandise.

Since this time Imago Mortis has incorporated both photography and design work under it's banner with commissions from a wide range of clients from fields historical re-enactment, music, consulting, modelling websites, and university societies.
Today Sean focusses on creating dark and surreal work, preferring infra-red portraiture, low-key lighting and long exposures to create experimental art that hark back to the likes of Man Ray and the pioneering years of antiquated photography.
