Les momies de Palerme
Editions du Chêne, 1980
1st edition, softcover
128 pages, 24 x 24 cm
A beautiful yet little known series shot in the catacombs of the famous Capuchin convent of Palermo in Sicily. Over a hundreds black and white photographs of woman, men and children dressed in their last garment are presented in this square and elegantly designed book. A slightly chilling but actually quite meditative series. Recommended. In good condition with signs of aging (yellowing and a few creases).
