DESCRIPTION

Photography show: photos from the Empire of Death

 

The Empire of Death by art historian/photographer Dr. Paul Koudounaris was named one of the ten best books of 2011 by London's Evening Standard--unique as a work of history writing and photography,  it was the world's first ever study of bone-decorated religious shrines. Original photos from the book, some over four feet wide, will be on display at the Articulated Gallery at Loved to Death in San Francisco. The photos will be augmented by a selection from the author's forthcoming book, Heavenly Creatures, a study of seventeenth-century, jewel-encrusted, full skeleton relics. On display from June 2 to June 28, these stunning images probe the macabre to reveal a profound and sympathetic beauty, and visitors to the show will gain a rare opportunity to enter into a mysterious world seldom seen.
