Bard Alumna Lisa Kereszi ’95 to Launch Mourning, a New Photo Monograph
Mourning is available for presale through August 1 at the collaborative publishing platform Minor Matters Books, and will include an essay by curator and writer Marvin Heiferman.
Kereszi, a photography major at Bard, first became interested in visiting cemeteries to make photographs after photographer Stephen Shore showed her Walker Evans’s famous 1936 picture of a desolate grave in Alabama. In publishing Mourning, she is collaborating for the second time with Bard alumna Michelle Dunn Marsh ’95, with whom she worked previously on Joe’s Junk Yard, 2012 by Damiani Books. Marsh founded Minor Matters Books with the aim of creating a publishing platform that makes its audience co-publishers of photo book titles, enabling production support solely through pre-sales, rather than through traditional means.
