“The book is one of the strongest, best and most extraordinary I have ever seen. It deals with death – something most of us do not want or do not feel able to deal with in such a visualy way. And it is about what remains after we die.
What makes the book – actually there are two books – so good are the acuteness in design, the gentle dealing with the pictures, and the sequencing. Requiem could easily have gotten stagy, and I do not want to imagine the showcased pictures on a website, on a weblog or in a newspaper. They only work like this – with space between them and arround, coloured, and with the thick application of colour. The book may be called morbid; still it is a pictorial, gentle – although direct – morbidity we are confronted with. If we want to get involved with” – from the “dienacht” book review by Calin Kruse
