Description

A small-format photo album with clear protective pockets filled with removable black and white photographs of graveyard statuary that seems to have emerged from Treleaven’s own gothic fantasies. Forty-three separate photographic c-prints, each 4 × 6 inches, all taken in the cemetery of Milan, depict weathered stone monuments of androgynous figures draping themselves over gravestones or lying back in religious ecstasy, or grief. The Milan cemetery is unusual in that the statuary exhibits an extreme tenderness in its depiction of the male figure, unlike the heroic sculpture most often associated with the dead. A signed and numbered signature card is inserted in each photo album.

Edition of 150, signed and numbered.
