Margaret Stratton's portfolio:The Living and the Dead: Ressurecting the Neopolitan Cult of the Skull
"These photographs document the labyrinth of aqueducts, catacombs and bizarre underground shrines that lie beneath the ancient city of Naples, Italy. My intention is that this work will serve as both photographic record and as homage to the timeless practice of honoring the dead and marking the significance of their passage."—Margaret Stratton

Margaret Stratton's portfolio: Ancient Ruins, Abandoned Naples: A Photographic Study
"My photographic project Ancient Ruins, Abandoned Naples, explores the relationship between mortality, religious doctrine, architecture and the historic ruin...These photographs continue my investigation of spaces that embody accumulated histories and experiences, places that continue to define and to inform the present. In essence, these images are of places that physically replicate the past not only as relics but also as events, bearing traces of bodies in their most elemental form."—Margaret Stratton

Open for Bidding: Lucien Clergue: Corps mémorable Open for Bidding: Lucien Clergue: Corps mémorable
With this publication, Clergue virtually invented the mainstream erotic photobook. Books published during the 1960s that bear its unmistakable influence include The Face of Love by Sanne Sannes; Cowboy Kate and Other Stories and Five Girls by Sam Haskins; all of the work of Jeanloup Sieff...the list could go on. It bears the distinction of being the first 'over-the-counter' photobook to show female pubic hair (permissible only because the models' faces are not shown).—reference Parr & Badger, The Photobook, A History, vol. I.

"This fascinating book assembles more than 250 photographic images from the Victorian era to the 1960s, each purporting to document an occult phenomenon: levitations, apparitions, transfigurations, ectoplasms, spectres, ghosts, and auras. Drawn from the archives of European and American occult societies and private and public collections, the photographs in many cases have never before been published."—the publisher READ MORE

In 2002, drawn to the rich details and compelling stories preserved in the criminal records, she began restaging the events, outfitting the "victims" (her selected models) in current haute couture, and photographing them in her staged settings.
