The photographs are absolutely beautiful and the essays are thoughtful and well written. The photographer mentions the great American photographer Clarence John Laughlin as an influence on him. Laughlin influence another favorite photographer of mine, the late, great, Sir Simon Marsden, as well. Yes, this book is about death. It is unflinching as it looks at the darkness and silence behind death. Death might mean an eternal end to everything. But most men and women have always hoped for light and hope beyond the grave.This book is about that hope. It is about the struggle of the artist to create beauty and hope in the face of death itself.
