"In 1956 Johan van der Keuken (1938-2001) moved from Amsterdam to Paris to study at the School of Film. There Van der Keuken took thousands of photographs, the city acting as a background to his feelings of desolation. In 1963 a selection of these were published in a book called 'Paris Mortel'. The complete book, including the original dummy Van der Keuken made and a few previously unpublished photographs are collected in this publication."—Van Zoetendaal Publishers

The Living and the Dead: The Neapolitan Cult of the Skull
Photographs by Margaret Stratton published by Center for American Places
$37.50 $19.95— Purchase Book

"Snaking beneath the streets and crumbling churches of Naples is a vast system of ancient catacombs and aqueducts, many lined with skulls in seemingly endless rows stretching far back into the depths of the caverns. In The Living and the Dead, Margaret Stratton provides an unusual photographic record that documents these spaces in which Neapolitans of early Christian history sought to preserve emotional connections to the afterlife through rituals in which the tangible skull represents the ephemeral soul."—Center for American Places
