REQUEST: close-up photograph of an image on a grave in Montreal QC Canada #photographs #canada
I have a special request for a photograph of an image on a grave in Montreal. The gravestone of my uncle Mortimor (may his memory be for a blessing) has his photograph set into it, and it's the only photo of him that's still in existence that I'm aware of.
My request is for a close-up, head-on photograph just of Morty's photograph on the gravestone -- as high a quality as possible.
My plan is to print out the photo you take and frame it and give it as a gift to my aunt, who has been without a photo of her beloved late brother her entire adult life. I'm including the info for the grave's location below, as well as a link to its profile on JOWBR. Thank you so much in advance for your help.
Cemetery: Back River Cemetery - Memorial Gardens
Section: Shaare Zion Congregation
Address: Corner Berri and Sauve, Montreal, Quebec
Location: Line 11 Grave 9

Name: Mortimor KOGAN
Again, thank you so much in case you can help with this request.
Have you posted a request on Findagrave?
I understand you've been connected with Gary Perlman, who I know will do a great job for you. He is a local legend having photographed thousands upon thousands of Montreal gravestones. You'll get a great photograph for sure.
The image is on stone, so there is going to be some stone grain I assume. If you want the image cleaned up or colorized, the Reddit forum r/estoration is full of eager volunteers (also people who require "tips" if you want their efforts). Once you get the image you could ask over at www.reddit.com/r/estoration
