Sleeping Beauty II: Grief, Bereavement in Memorial Photography American and European Traditions
by Stanley Burns
Publisher's Description
This volume expands the history of early postmortem and memorial photography, and continues the exploration of the subject to present day. Several new topics are surveyed, and four new major themes are addressed in detail: family bonds, grief and mourning; the significant differences between American and European postmortem photography; the artistry of posthumous mourning photographs; and a new grieving ritual using photographs. Photographs from over 15 countries are examined. Extensive captions accompany some 140 new images, and a detailed chronology and bibliography aid further research.
