Blue Sky Books

Fine Arts faculty member Karl Baden has a new monograph published by Blues Sky Books, as part of a recent, print on demand series on artists who have exhibited in their gallery. Work from Two Bodies reproduces photographs from two independent projects Baden completed in the 1980s: Cliché-Verre and Shadow Pictures, 1983-84, and Sex, Death and the History of Photography, 1988-9.
