Softcover in slipcase, gatefold on each page, edition of 500 copies, design by Federico Carpani.

MAA portrays the funeral rituals of Manikarnika, the cremation ground of Vanarasi, India, alongside moving images of everyday life in this utterly unique place.
A collaboration with Indra - one of the very few people allowed to photograph the events here - the book is a sampling of photographs carefully selected by photographer/artist Federico Carpani, from a roughly 10,000 photograph archive, created intently by Federico and Indra over the last few years.
The book’s pages fold, enabling a structure of two combined sequences, alternating the inside and outside of the folded pages. The outer is a flux of 108 both living and dead headshots, a tribute to the Goddess Kali, who wears a garland of 108 slain heads around her neck. The inside is a selection of everyday scenes and stories of life in Manikarnika. Together they serve to accurately depict this singular place.
