Photo Books By Vince Aletti


"In her introduction to Closer, Carucci wrote that “the camera was…both a way to get close, and to break free. It was a testimony to independence as well as a new way to relate.” She continues that invigorating, illuminating push and pull in her new book, Midlife (Monacelli), combining it with what she describes in the book’s afterword as “a particular, very up-close – almost scientific – way of seeing.” The result is fascinatingly forensic, especially when the subject is her own body, every wrinkle and grey hair of which she examines in near-microscopic detail."
