Publisher's Description
"Photography likes sculpture. It likes to see how things look from different angles, especially things that don't move...And sculpture likes photography. It likes to show off its many faces, its volumes, patinas, and textures. Above all, it likes the way photography, which makes living figures still, awakens figures frozen in stone."--from the text by Peter Galassi. The Staglieno cemetery sits on the edge of Genoa, and was created during the late nineteenth century. Friedlander again hits his stride with these remarkable images of the memorials created for the good citizens of this Italian town. The book is bound in a gorgeous dark purple velvet with a large image tipped on to the cover.
