Definitive monograph of Cratsley's moving body of work, published in the same year that he died of HIV/AIDS. Sculpture and other objects, street scenes, portraits, lovers, gay life in New York, and more, all with the "dominant theme [of] the mysteries of light and shadow" (photo is too pale). In his acknowledgments Cratsley writes "now with AIDs, my life is not about expecting. . . . Love and work have proven to be great antidotes to illness, worry, and pain." Originally published at $60. Large; shipping/handling may be extra. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
