Beautiful Ecstasy is a collection of Michael Northrup’s snapshot portraits and still lifes, shot in the 70’s and 80’s. Young families – Northrup’s own and friends – are depicted making babies and partying in small town America.
The pictures have a feeling of intense ecstasy and danger. This book is full of emotion both jubilant and heartbreaking.
Edited by Paul Sahre and Jason Fulford.
