Memento Mori: A Love Story, Free at the Morbid Anatomy Museuem
May 9, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Do you like death? Because death likes you, and not in a bad or creepy way. Author, photographer, and death expert Dr. Paul Koudounaris has traveled the world for the past decade, studying the way different cultures preserve the link between the living and the dead. In the process he has produced a pair of visually stunning, award winning books (The Empire of Death and Heavenly Bodies). His recently released third book, Memento Mori, was recently named a top ten new art and photo book by American Photo and listed by Interview Magazine as their choice of coffee table books of the month for April. And he will discuss the new book complete with a stunning slideshow of macabre yet beautiful images taken in over 60 countries. It turns out it’s not actually not all that creepy to cuddle with mummies. Find out how and why in a lecture that’s a can’t miss event for fans of the weird and esoteric. He will also sign copies of the new book.
