British man who spent over R824,000 to travel the world and take photos at celebrity graves

Briton Mark Tubbs has visited around 700 cemeteries in different countries and photographed the graves of famous people. For this, he spent more than R$ 824 thousand to “enjoy” his somewhat unusual hobby. Information from O Globo.

“I’ve probably visited hundreds of famous graves in England, and I’ve visited all but three of our Prime Ministers. […] I am very interested in history and world affairs and would like to go to Moscow to take a photo with Stalin, as well as Churchill and Roosevelt.

Mark has posted 1,857 posts on his Flickr account (a photo-sharing site), which has just three followers.

However, all is not easy during his journey. In an interview with The Daily Star, Mark recalled his ordeal when he visited the grave of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States.

“I saw a metal ladder nearby, they were doing some work, I went up to take a picture, but the ladder fell. I thought I would be stuck there for hours. I secured the bottom step with my tripod and managed to pull it out,” he concluded.
