SKELETONS OF THE WEEK, JUNE 17: THE RELICS AT WALDSASSEN BASILICA

Well, once again I must beg off of doing an actual post–still in Europe and at this point have photographed 14 sites in four countries in 13 days, so it’s not like I have much free time. But until I get back on track again, here are some photos I took for the upcoming book of the skeletons in Waldassen, Germany, they are a real fab bunch of bones.













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
