SKELETONS OF THE WEEK, JUNE 10: THE MUMMIFIED CAPUCHIN MONKS IN ROME

I am still working in Europe and have zero time to write out a proper post, but feel free to take a look at a few of the photos I shot today of the mummified Capuchin monks in Rome.









The book Heavenly Bodies by Paul Koudounaris, a history of skeletons taken from the Roman Catacombs, will be released Fall 2013 by Thames and Hudson. Images from the book will be featured in a gallery show at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles, and the book is available for pre-order via
