BOOK EXCERPT:

The idea of photographing the dead is as old as photography itself. For the most part, early death photographs were commissioned or taken by relatives of the deceased and preserved in the home as part of the family collection. Once thought inappropriate and macabre, today these photographs are considered to have a beneficial role in bereavement therapy. Photography and Death reveals the beauty and significance of such images, formerly dismissed as disturbing or grotesque, and places them within the context of changing cultural attitudes towards death and loss. Excluding images of death through war, violence, or natural disasters, Audrey Linkman concentrates on photographs of natural deaths within the family. She identifies the range of death-related photographs that have been produced in both Europe and North America since the 1840s and charts changes in their treatment through the decades. Photography and Death will interest photo, art, and social historians and practitioners in the field of bereavement therapy, as well as those who wish to better understand the images of long-lost ancestors who gaze back from the pages of family albums.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Sometimes thought to be a bizarre Victorian custom, photographing corpses has been and continues to be an important, if not recognized, occurrence in American life. It is a photographic activity, like the erotica produced in middle-class homes by married couples, that many privately practice but seldom circulate outside the trusted circle of close friends and relatives. Along with tombstones, funeral cards, and other images of death, these photographs represent one way in which Americans have attempted to secure their shadows.

Eyes of the World: Grateful Dead Photography 1965 - 1995 is a large format coffee table book that will bring together, for the first time, a comprehensive collection of photographs from a wide range of photographers whose work has defined the Grateful Dead during their 30 year career. The focus of the book is to present these iconic, lesser-known and unseen images in an unfettered manner that will see them being presented as full page or two-page images on heavyweight paper across 272 oversized pages. Since Jerry Garcia's passing in 1995, the band's popularity has remained immense as evidenced by their continued merchandise sales, acclaimed 50th anniversary "Fare Thee Well" concerts in 2015 and highly anticipated documentary due out this May 2017. Among the photographers included are Herb Greene, Jim Marshall, David Gahr, Baron Wolman, Jay Blakesberg, Michael Putland, William Coupon, Michael O'Neill and Peter Simon, to name just a few. With support from the band's official archivist David Lemieux, Eyes of the World will stand the test of time to become the definitive visual reference of this "band beyond description."
