Life before Death

i stumbled upon the following site today and was utterly fascinated. 

Roland Barthes says that a photograph is a referent to a moment that has past, and therefore is representative of a time that will never exist again - it has passed us by. But for the dead, does photography do the opposite, and immortalize their presence in a specific moment for all time?

I looked through these photographs and couldn't keep posing this question, because I was side tracked by the dead's skin and how is slips off the face like a loose glove.

Portfolio Box and Cover Hell!!

So, I got an email while I was in Miami that I need to decide what size my book will be - by today! Awesome. So I figured I would look at some other books online and see what others have done. I'm not so sure about getting one of those large ass boxes, so I wanted to see other options.
