Memento Mori - Paul Koudounaris

£39.99Price

Through photos taken at more than 250 sites over a decade, anthropologist and photographer Dr Paul Koudounaris has captured death around the world. He takes the reader on his photographic pilgrimages, from Bolivia's festival where skulls are festooned with flowers, to Indonesia's customs where families dress mummies in clothes; from the publicly- shown preserved Buddhist monks, to the visitor-friendly bone-chapels of Europe.  This lush volume of astounding photographs serves to  demonstrate how the dead continue to be present in the lives of people everywhere.    

London: Thames & Hudson, 2015. Hardback, 216 pages.  New.
