Booknotes: Ghosts - Images of War

New Arrival:
Ghosts - Images of War by Carrie Zeidman (Swiss Creek Publications, 2015).

The idea of invoking the tragic past by "superimposing and digitally manipulating historical images of the past with photos of the present" came to author and photographer Carrie Zeidman during a visit to the Nazi concentration camps in Poland. Her book Ghosts draws its inspiration from four conflicts -- the Revolutionary War, the Civil War (Gettysburg, Antietam, and Appomattox), World War One and World War Two. The text that accompanies the full-page photographs is part history, part travelogue.
